In any workplace it is important to continuously test, analyse performance, and tweak processes and tasks to ensure that every individual, team, and department is moving in the same direction towards the set out wider company goals. If you are a manager, or about to become a manager, it is vital that you improve you own personal skills of communication and leadership to help your team reach its targets.
Being able to offer constructive criticism in an honest, yet positive, fashion is a vital aspect of being a successful modern day manager. The only way to improve as an individual is to understand your mistakes and work out how to improve the next time you perform those same tasks. As a good leader you can provide constructive criticism in a way that highlights problems but provides a solution, instead of just disciplining the employee.
By being open and honest with your communication style, and providing a positive outlook in the majority of aspects of a working team environment you can foster a togetherness that really lends itself to hard work, dedication to the cause and an increase in standards and productivity that helps a team meet its targets and works towards the wider company goals over the medium to long-term.
