Encourage employees to bring their own head phones to use while sitting at their desks.
5. Keep yourself from talking too much.
If you are encouraging your employees to not get caught up in conversation, make sure, in the same way, you are not wasting their time.
Are you keeping your meetings effective and to the point?
If you have one point to bring to the table, then should your meeting last an hour?
Unless you're bringing tacos to Tuesday's meeting, or turning it into happy hour, droning on for too long will result in losing employees' focus and could potentially disrupt their thought process for the rest of the work day.
6. What you reward gets repeated.
Speaking of tacos and happy hour...why not?
What is something that you know your employees would enjoy that you can implement into each week?
If every week is too often, why not every time you make a sale or reach a goal?
Encouragement can go a long way, but physical acts of rewarding hard work can go even further.
Bringing donuts on a morning you know your office has a deadline could give your employees that extra kick they need that morning.
Team members are vital to your business.
Whether you have two people or one hundred people, it is important to make sure each person is taken care of well.
