  4. Describe your business clearly so your employees understand what you say.
  5. Deserved praise frequently. I repeat, deserved praise frequently.
  6. Keep criticism brief and constructive.
  7. Celebrate Everything! When you complete part of a project/when you complete the entire project/when you have a new team member – you get the idea.
