Just like any community you are involved with, life is a lot more pleasant if people treat each other with kindness, consideration and respect. While not everyone can (or should) share the same opinion or always agree, differences should be tolerated and disagreements resolved openly and honestly.
By cultivating a culture of kindness and openness from the top down and having a zero-tolerance bullying and harassment policy, you are creating a safe space where people are comfortable to be themselves and express their opinions in a healthy way.
Celebrate And Appreciate Success
Every employee wants to feel valued and appreciated for the role they play within your team. Maintain a positive vibe by celebrating success - both small wins and big milestones. If one person played an important role, ensure they are thanked and recognized, but also take the opportunity to appreciate the team as a whole.
Rewards can be as simple as writing a personalized thank you note or saying thanks in person, or as elaborate as shouting everyone a shared lunch or team dinner. Reward and recognition are huge motivators which can boost morale and encourage positive collaboration.
