First I would make sure to have a good relationship with my staff. I would want them to feel like they can come to me with any issues. I would try to be as open as possible and not negative towards no ones issue. I would treat all employees the same, no special treatment cause of your title. Everyone is IMPORTANT! If you treat staff with respect then they will carry all that respect to the way they treat the customers!!
