Be interested in your employees.

Walk around the office and chat one-on-one with people, asking them about themselves, their day-to-day work, their kids, how their weekend was.

If you make time to also walk around your corporate office and talk to people individually, they remember that and will cut you a little slack when you’ve got to rush out the door the next time. It also allows you to get to know your people well, what makes them tick and what makes them successful or what makes them do their best.

Knowing your people and having a relationship or personal connection with them, however small, allows your organization to want to perform better. Those employees become a lot more willing to go above and beyond the call of duty for you.

Just make sure you are consistent. You don't want to be that manager who tries something once or twice and then gets too busy to keep it up.
