    Excellent suggestions:

    - Be a good leader by working hard

    - Consult employees regularly

    Reason: A good manager is someone to sets good examples and respects his employees. By working hard, the manager is showing his employees that everyone in the company has to work hard. The worst managers are ones who offload all their work to their employees while they go play golf. By consulting employees regularly, the manager is showing his employees that their feedback and opinion matters. When working as a team, a manager needs to ensure that each employee is respected. A respected employee will then be a happy employee and will more likely put more effort in his/her work.

    Good suggestions:

    - Regularly socialize with employees after working hours

    - Eat lunch with employees in the staff restaurant

    - Go picnicking together

    Reason: Getting to know your employees in a outside work environment is important in the development of good communications and relations skills. Once you get to know your employees better, and allowing them to know you better, you can then easily establish a strong trust and bond with them.

    Bad suggestions:

    - Invite employees home

    - Help arrange the marriage of employees

    - Attend marriages and family funerals of employees

    Reason: However, you want to be careful you stay within reasonable boundaries and not go into your employee's personal space. Everyone deserves privacy and home, personal relationships and family matters of an employee or yourself is definitely off-limits. You want to show your employees that you care, but you don't to run their lives for them.
