You want your employees to respect you—not fear you. Creating a positive work environment will yield far better results for your employees and your company.

Here are few tips that you could follow as a boss for good and happy work environment

Clear communication

Good communication between a boss and his or her employees is essential for a positive working relationship. Your employees need to understand what you want them to accomplish, but you also need to have an idea of what they expect from you. There should be an equal amount of communication from you and your employees.

Listen to everyone's ideas

Each one of your employees is with your company for a reason. Encourage employees to voice ideas. Even if the idea may need some work, it's still important that everyone has his or her say. This will show that each member of your team is valuable and his or her input is just as important as a fellow coworker's.

Recognise hard work

It's a good idea to reward an employee who does a good job. Recognising the individuals who work hard will encourage them to keep up the great work. It also instills the notion that hard work is acknowledged and appreciated, and encourages other employees to strive for the same recognition.

Have some fun

Your employees are spending eight hours of their day in the office. Maintaining a professional environment is important—but that doesn't mean it has to be dull. A happier employee will perform much better than a miserable one.

Lead the way

As the one in charge, you are the one who sets the tone for your employees. If you are grumpy and negative, your employees will react accordingly. If you stay positive, your work environment will reflect that. A smile is contagious—and a frown even more so.
