Positive Reminders Are Best

Part of your job as a boss is to remind people of things they're supposed to do. When you remind, do it in the positive. Say "remember" instead of "don't forget." Say "complete your checklist at 5" instead of "don't leave without completing your checklist tonight."

Using the positive form makes your reminder easier to remember and more likely to get the outcome you want.
