    Tough to say as much of what's pushed comes from outside of admin.
    Be sincere and honest with staff.
    Stop back stabbing
    Speak what's on mind, with tact, to employees directly. Enough with passive aggressive behavior
    Don't insult intelligence of staff.
    Be consistent and support staff
