  • Encourage the behavior you want to enhance by creating a safe environment for them to take risks.
  • Avoid blaming when someone makes a mistake. Hold staff accountable, but use mistakes as learning opportunities to foster continued initiative.
  • Ask employees to come up with process improvements, listen to their suggestions, and implement their recommendations, wherever possible.
