■ Bosses, first and foremost, learn to let go!
■ You hired that person, let him unleash his potential by providing the environment to be able to do just that. Create a nurturing workplace.
■ Your job as boss is to take the hassles – such as bureaucracy, frustration about processes, mistrust – out of your people’s way so they can be productive.
■ Sometimes, companies stifle their people’s potential because they don’t empower them or listen to them enough.
■ Encourage team dynamics. Conversing with others is the best thing to drive creativity. Those situations have really worked for me. I always get a lot of ideas from interacting with others.
■ Never forget you are always a manager of somebody. Even if I run a large organization, and there are many people that I don’t get to see, I still like to know how they feel about the company. That’s a very important job.
■ Make it a point to get to know your people, and they, you. When you form a relationship, then it will be easier to discuss work problems.
