Educate your employees. Let them know the mission and vision of the organization and how their daily functions positively impact the company. Once we know how we make a difference and can see a project from start to finish, we’re more likely to be invested in the process.
Ask the right people, the right questions. Talk to employees are who actually doing the job functions about how they do they job and what struggles they might be having.
Remove any obstacles or barriers. Ask employees what might be getting in their way from doing their jobs.
Communicate. Let people know how you like to be communicated with and when you want to be updated on a project (weekly, monthly, when it’s completed)
