Check back each week for this regular tips recap designed to help you work smarter, not harder. 

When building a can-do culture, think beyond fancy perks. Focus instead on how you treat your employees and the behavior you model for them. “Culture and values can substitute for resources,” says Boston Beer Company CEO Jim Koch.

To create company unity, email less and schedule more in-person talks. Brian Bordainick, the founder of New Orleans-based pop-up meal experience Dinner Lab, even flies teams in to meet one another to exchange ideas and keep them working as one.

And if you want entrepreneurial staffers, treat them like entrepreneurs. Help them manage themselves and give them room to make mistakes, says John Schnatter, founder of billion-dollar pizza franchise Papa John's. This route is crucial to supporting innovation in all aspects of your business.
