Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen to your employees, relate to them, hear their complaints, concerns, ideas.

Figure out your vision and follow through.

A higher education and a higher title do not equate to a better person, don't treat your employees like they are beneath you.

Be open in your decision making. don't keep employees in the dark and do not lie to them.
