People are the most valuable assets any organization could have. The output and total achievements of an organization rely on the employees. Treating personnel in the right way is an important aspect to the management. The same way of handling employees does not always work out especially when one is dealing with a diverse workforce. The way managers view their subordinates does affect the functioning of the organization as a whole.
Leaders should take time to understand their employees. Not all employees are the same in terms of their values and believes, culture and how they handle different situations. Such kind of traits and characteristics inspire an individual’s performance. Making decisions regarding personnel that a manager understand them well is less challenging. Decisions that could impact their job are made wisely. Employee involvement in decision making is another aspect.
Staff who feel they are part and parcel of the organization would go beyond their expectations to give their best. They possess the values of responsibility and accountability. They are also contented and happy while taking up their roles. When managers do not appreciate their subordinates,they feel they are of less significance hence reduce their productivity. Workers could either leave their jobs or remain behind but have less determination towards their jobs. There are means which managers can use to show appreciation and value for their employees.
A noble managers knows how to communicate and how to behave well around their workers. He doesn’t have to make employees afraid and intimidated each time he is around them. A manager should at times position themselves as workers too of the same organization. The subordinates should feel free to talk and share their contribution with you. If an employee seeks advice or assistance from you when faced with a challenge, take them through how you dealt with the same situation. This proves to them that you are the same and they can identify themselves with you. A leader should pick out and address issues their employees have while working. This develops a good working connections with them.
A manager should spare some period for their works. It is tough and challenging when personnel know they can’t count on their superior to listen to them. Even though one is busy, creating a little time to converse with your team members and employees is of great importance. Make them feel that their life outside the workplace also matters. For example if an employee has been having frequent absenteeism, a good manager just won’t set them for a disciplinary action. A manager should have a talk with the worker to determine the root causes to the issue.
A leader should also show concern to the people that matter most to the worker.
