Often, organizations drive improvement in their workplace cultures reactively. Organizations will create programs or initiatives that react to marketplace conditions such as industries that are in decline or maybe even in reaction to a pandemic crisis. At the core of every organization should be leaders across the board proactively providing positivity to each and every one of their team members. Here are some basic suggestions on how every leader can do this:

  1.  Call people into the office whether in person or virtual and only provide positive and specific feedback.
  2.  Send a handwritten card home detailing why an employee is showing great promise in specifically doing great work.
  3.  All people into your office whether the person or virtual and have your boss there and be prepared to only praise that employee.

 The techniques are so simple yet at their core are proactive and positive and will insulate every workplace culture from  inevitable change and industry challenges.
