1) Encourage Teamwork
You cannot achieve anything in life being alone so, office is not something different. In an organization one who loves to be in team actually grows. If you are not team friendly then you will be knocked out over a period of time. It is always good to be friendly and have team spirit it will not do any harm to you. So you should encourage your team with targets and ask them to work towards a goal to achieve something big. Encourage them with quotes like united we stand divided we fall.
It is always good to provide targets and reward the achievements. If your team feels there is something they need to work for then they will put the required efforts to reach the target. You should be genuine with your team. For example if they achieve something you need to give them awards and recognition or appraisals, salary increments etc. If you postpone it then the spirit of working for the company will reduce and it will hamper the quality of the work. If you treat your employees very well they will take care of your company.
3) Promote Individual achievements
It is always good to encourage the individuals because each individual is required to form a team. So if the individual is achieving something for himself/herself you must encourage him/her on that basis. For example your team mate wants to go for higher studies or wants to sharpen managerial skills, help them out to do so effectively. If suppose they do any mistake just do not criticize them in front of other people but tell them in isolation.
Graduates who are looking to start a business after their mechanical engineering jobs should follow the above mentioned advice.
