Kartik thanks for your comment.

Albert Schweitzer said, "Example is leadership." For many companies, walking the talk is the hardest task there is. In the long run, being "real" is the only thing that works with people, so it's worth a shot. Talk to them, mentor them, be their coach. Be present and let them know you're available to help them with their work. If you can't help them directly, introduce them to someone that can. Make the introduction. Remember, connecting with someone at work doesn't always have to be about 'work'. Get to know your people and what makes them tick. When you show a genuine interest in someone, what they're all about, their interests, their goals, and aspirations ... it's going to be so much easier to connect with them on a human level.

Hi! Thanks for this list, I have many great things planned based off of it!

One for me to add, and it's more on the Teamwork end. We celebrate a goal that we accomplish as a team, not just as individuals. That way we're all engaged with helping each other as well as ourselves.

Great article - I'm about one year into managing my library branch in a regional system. I've got a lot of ideas brewing from your ideas. I'll share here in case they are of use to someone else:
At previous staff training days, I've had anonymous compliment bags where staff members are asked to think of one positive message/compliment to give to another staff member. This gets people thinking positively about one another and it's nice to have staff feel recognized by everyone.
A "genius file idea repository" where they can leave notes about how to improve anything at work - patron experience, staff experience, etc. so that they have input at all times.
Set up a "relaxation station" in my office or a "take a break" station - encourage them to take their 15 minute breaks, set up a candy bowl, set out coloring pages, word searches, or sudoku for quick stress-relievers, and some flowers (probably fake - no outside window in my office) to create a little space to encourage stress relief.
Encourage networking - shadowing people in other branches and go for a ride-along in the Bookmobile, and job-sharing (I'll have to get our entire system in on this for it to work).
Branch Brainstorming - We have branch meetings every month - I give everyone a chance to speak up about whatever they want - but it might be nice to have a brainstorm session where I introduce a specific topic to address and group-brainstorm on it for 10-15 minutes.
Question of the week: on my dry-erase board on my door, set up a question every week that allows them to express something about themselves - which might start funny conversations or dialogue with other staff members. Giving back: We can set out community donation boxes where folks can donate to a local charity (food bank, International Rescue Committee, SPCA, books for underprivileged kids, etc.) - have my staff let me know what cause they want to support.
Sick time: we have sick time and annual leave. I'd love to see if our company would allow us to use sick time for personal wellness and hygiene like haircuts, massages, etc., which boost moods and make us feel more confident.
Just some ideas I've tossed around. Would love to see more people post concrete ideas, too!
