2. Much more positive feedback, in the moment with examples and recognition shared within the group

4. More structured communications and update sessions e.g Tuesday at 10 you send out a team update, plus Wednesdays at 2 we all update together
5. Discretion at the point of decision-making is particularly important at this time reinforcing why each person’s own judgement is so so important.
I would love to hear your own tips on creating happier and more productive teams.
