  1. Always maintain eye contact.
  2. Base difficult decisions on facts, not emotions.
  3. Let everyone stick to their usual habits and routines.
  4. Everyone needs to broaden their skillset.
  5. Never let your work environment go stale.
  6. Good teams are built on good preparation.
  7. Encourage the classic principles of hard work and reward.
  8. Teams don’t work unless everyone is having fun.
