Better Ways to Communicate With Employees

As a start-up owner or new entrepreneur, you may find it difficult to manage employees while running your company. Indeed, entrepreneurs work beyond overtime in this department, but there are several things you can do to make sure your employees are all on the same page. It’s important to keep the lines of communication open at all times so your employees feel appreciated and will work at their full capacity for you.

  • Keep an open door policy.
  • Reward accordingly.
  • Never be passive aggressive.

The best start-up owner has an open door policy with employees. This means he or she allows employees to come in and talk to them at any time about any matter. This is awesome because it gives autonomy to the employees to talk to you as they see fit. In most start-ups people are doing many jobs at once, so it’s integral to have employees that feel comfortable communicating with you over any issue, no matter how small.

Rewarding your team accordingly. Recognize those who take initiative and are willing to take risks with new ideas. Be open and honest about who is pulling their weight because it will motivate everyone on the team. Never be passive aggressive with employees. You never want to lose their respect because you aren’t saying what’s on your mind. Be direct, concise and honest. This will allow you to weed out anyone who isn’t on board with your vision and allow you to put your resources into someone who does.
