Tear Down the Walls
Instead of having rigorous walls between all of your desks so no one can look at one another and talk, remove the walls. Push the desks up against each other so everybody can chat without having to get up and perambulate a wall. It encourages open and friendly interaction with everyone in the instant area. A modification in how everybody interacts with each other will be immediately apparent.

Do not Constantly Stay in the Office
Leave the office occasionally. You don’t should get out every day, once a week is nice for everybody. Take everyone out to lunch and close the office for an hour. Get together when a month for happy hour at a favored neighborhood bar. Type a team of some sort and challenge one another and other business to a game. Doing this will motivate individuals to become buddies in your workplace instead of just coworkers, making sure that working together is a much easier and more positive experience.

Watch Exactly what You Say
Instead of making use of language that makes you appear like in charge, try making use of language that makes you appear like a team player and encourage the others in your office to do the exact same. Instead of utilizing the word “boss,” use the word “leader”. Try to find individuals to work “with” you, not “for” you. Simply rewording the means you state things can make individuals feel like they’re even more of a group and less like individuals just attempting to obtain work done.
