‘Brad Zarba And An Effective Workplace‘ details Brad Zarba’s unshakeable belief that every business leader should uphold and enforce the very highest ethical standards in his day-to-day role at work. Even if you consider yourself a moral, honest, and trustworthy individual, it is paramount that you set a clear example to your team of how you expect any relationship to be conducted. Your department or company is a reflection of yourself, and this includes all the employees,colleagues, and clients with whom you interact. Naturally, if you lead by example, it is to be hoped that your team will follow suit.
“Everyone thinks of changing the world, but nobody thinks of changing himself,” quotes Brad Zarba, and indeed this crucial point is one with which Brad Zarba is in full agreement. He prides himself on teaching and educating colleagues on the significance of the role of manager in every type of organization operating in any industry.

Another vital area in creating a excellent working environment is a sense of humor. It is a natural law – applicable in business as well as in one’s personal life – that something, at sometime, will go wrong.

Positive energy is key here. Try to make your team see the funny side of things, laugh at mistakes instead of becoming depressed and moody. Make jokes when possible and take an interest in what your team members did at the weekend or on vacation.
