If you're a boss, you know that every day is a challenge to do better. This tip is based on the same research I used to develop my programs and the Working Supervisor's Support Kit .
Prepare the ground
There will be times when you have to make a tough or unpopular decision. Then you'll need all the good will you can get. Prepare the ground now.
Be civil. Say "Please" and "Thank you." Help people. Listen. The good will you create now will help you when things get tough.
If you have a copy of the Working Supervisor's Support Kit , you'll find more on this in the chapters titled "Supervisory Interview Basics."
