Foster a Work Environment Where Mistakes Are Seen as Positives

Posted by in Management | Comments Off on Foster a Work Environment Where Mistakes Are Seen as Positives

Discipline is a necessary part of managing employees, but the secret to employees perceiving discipline, as a positive, is first to apply it fairly. Employees know when they and/or their fellow employees make mistakes; and they are more likely to accept discipline for those mistakes if employers are fair and then turn the mistake and resulting discipline into an opportunity to learn and grow.

Employees understand and accept that discipline is being applied fairly when employers explain that it is not a punishment (unless someone breaks a stated rule or policy). If employers create the right kind of workplace environment, then mistakes can be openly discussed and become important elements of any training program. Not only do employees learn how to improve their performance and eliminate the mistakes, but also those businesses can be more competitive and successful.
