Start with a personal touch. You have to remember that the employees you manage are people first, not just workers. Next you need to learn to criticise without being critical. There is a fine line between constructive criticism and a bad attitude. Make sure you are open and available to your employees. Encouraging employees to improve themselves is a must. Offer your subordinates the opportunity for training that will help them in their jobs as well as in their personal lives. Lastly, give employees something to work toward. Letting employees know that there are rewards and incentives for a job well done will make your job as a manager much easier.
