He actively seeks input to decisions from all levels of the organisation and he takes a personal interest in issues of importance to even the most junior staff. He is able to adapt his style depending on who he is communicating with depending on whether that is ashop floor employee or senior manager. He regularly takes the time to walk around the offices and factory, visiting all departments and stopping to get an update on how the various teams are doing.

Managers often mentor high performing employees from other departments in the business, providing support guidance and a sounding board to support employee development. As part of the Enhancing Service Excellence training, Trend Control run an additional module for managers called "crediting". This is where they train managers on how to recognise their employees with words so that they can understand the impact their work has had on others and the wider business.
