Eek, Christmas is now only a week away, and if you are anything like me, which I hope you’re not, there is still so much to fit it!
At work I’m trying to get everything finalised before I break up and at home I have a list as long as my arm of things I need to do, including at list of at least 10 presents I need to buy and fit in a food shop to feed the 12 people I have coming for Christmas lunch! At this rate they will be settling down to turkey and twiglets as everything else is still firmly in the shops!!
We all have a Christmas wish list, mine has on a it a magic pixie to sort everything while I’m sleeping… Sadly I don’t think that will happen, so at work at least we can try and make things seem a little lighter and brighter in this final manic week!
Here are our tips…
Manage your Time like Santa! Make time for your staff, we are all stretched for time especially this time of the year! Plan your time efficiently to get the most of your day and your staff.
Smile: Happy people attract positivity; positivity creates motivation inspiration and a happier working environment. The starting point is just a pure and simple a smile!
Appreciation: Show your staff that you recognise their hard work it really means a lot, especially at this time of year when we are all dashing here and there trying to get those last minute gifts before Christmas Eve!
Communicate: Make time to communicate with your staff, take an interest in their plans for Christmas and you can then say a personal thank you for their hard work this year. This is a gesture of good-will just like the three wise men and this will show that hard work does not go unnoticed!
