Director of Client Services at Arena Communications
Get key employee buy-in before making any announcements.
Confront problems head on and face-to-face because you are going to be seeing that face every day.
As with everything else in life, when you're requesting a raise, timing is everything.
Your employees don't want rewards -- they want respect.
Knowing who you are talking to is the first step to persuading them your idea is worth acting on.
