Respect your employees. Acknowledge good work and give feedback on sub par work (in private so the problem can be corrected).

Treat your subordinates as adults. Too many bosses revert to treating subordinates like children to be managed and monitored. A good manager gives a subordinate a job and lets them do it. They don’t micromanage. Everyone’s style is different.

Reognize diversity. Diversity means differences and that means that some of your subordinates won’t work with the same style that you have. A different working styles does not mean thes the wrong one.

Reward. Reward. Reward. Awards, verbal feedback, an e-mail. Make your staff feel appreciated and that they work they are doing is important.

I submit these suggestions both as my experience being a a subordinate and someone who has supervised staff.
