The Positive Work Environment
The work environment directly affects your employees’ motivation. I don’t mean the furnishings but the relationships that are created between the employees, the managers, the executives and the outsiders – the customers, suppliers and so on.
A positive management approach ensures that your people aim for the good instead of trying to simply avoid the bad. You see the vast gulf between good performance and not bad?
The environment is created by relationships of course, and the rewards and punishments you have designed.
It is essential that all managers, and new managers in particular, grasp this. Their job is to manage the staff to get the work done, they do that through the work environment.
