We have made a list with a few managing mistakes that can occur, regardless of the line of work of the company. Of course, most of them only happen in larger companies, but some are even applicable to smaller businesses. Keep on reading to find out what you should avoid doing in your relationship with your employees.

  1. Not listening

Having a managing position automatically means that you become a figure of authority for certain people and you have the responsibility to make sure that their activity is productive for the company.

More than that, they might not come to you with ideas and suggestions a second time. This means that you might lose some great ideas and even revenue.

  1. Not appreciating their work

Regardless of their line of work, employees need to feel appreciated and their work needs to be valued. Everyone, from sales agents, to mechanics and cleaning crew needs to be given credit for their work and needs to be praised when it is the case. Minimizing their efforts and dismissing their achievements is definitely not the way to go. It is a good thing that you want your employees to have excellent results and that you always push them to improve themselves and improve their work. However, acting like their efforts have not risen to your expectations might lead them to believe that you are hard to please and …

Essentially, this limo rental company realized that in order to stand out from the competition they should upgrade to stunning interiors that will be the back drop of instagraming party goers for years to come. The problem there are very few companies out their that specialize in limousine interior design. Perhaps a good business idea for any of our readers looking to branch out into other markets and make name for yourself in a specific line of business.

Limousine Lighting

Choice of lighting will alter moods and ultimately influence behavior of passengers. Since we know this, we may as well take advantage! So what are the colors for limousine interior? Well, thats where this limo business is looking for your help. Particularly for their Lincoln town car and navigator stretch limousines. The most commonly used lighting is LED lights.

Rather, it would be a nice touch to add some exterior lighting designs. Ottawa, Ontario can be a very icy place in the winter time and having some additional visibility with halogen footboard lighting will light up any potential hazards that even a red carpet cant make safe!

Limo Fabrics and Seating

Leather has been the overwhelming choice for limousine fabric internationally for years but perhaps weve been overlooking some other excellent options. Leather interior in limos has long been considered the go to for it universal representation of sexy style and in a more logical sense a very rugged, durable and easily cleaned material. With that being said, there are some downsides to having leather seating. Sumer months, leather tends to heat up, something that may be a serious concern for bridesmaids that will potentially have exposed skin making contact with leather seating in very hot temperatures.
