This limits their level of productivity and they lose the respect they have for you.

2. Avoid being partial to any of your employees – treat all your employees equally irrespective of their background, qualification, competence or level of hierarchy. If the lowest member of your staff enjoys equality, they will remain loyal to you. Don’t give special treatment to any employee simply because they are related to you.
