Here were a few of my favorite points:
💻 Think of problems as the basis for new ideas. Seek out what items are giving your employees trouble and make it a point to work with them to solve them.

💻 I’m a big fan of this one – Celebrate WINS to create a winning team. Recognize employee achievements and provide a forum to share the good work your employees have been doing.
