If you were your own manager for one day, what would you change?
If you were in charge of the department you work in for one day, what would you do differently? Would it be something with the actual work you do, or the place you work in?
Thanks for your time!

Create a supportive and trusting environment for the team. Be open and honest.
If I was manager for myself, I would allow collaboration with outside area to help maintain information accurate and available to everyone within the departments. Also making it easier to allocate work or assistance.
I have been a manager for a fast food company, and so have learned some great ways to help the day go by smoothly. To relate it to my current profession, I would visualize before my shift started, what I wanted to accomplish for the day, and then plan how I would do that. Once in the office, set the plan in motion, and be sure to include everyone. I would throw in some "trivia games" to keep the day light, and be sure to praise the team throughout the day for the great job they are doing. When the day is over, log the successes and opportunities, so that the rest of the week, month, year, can go smoothly.
make time for a one on one... talk about feelings; and then remind myself to act as my own manager in my career and in my life.
If i were my own manager i would make every day fun and productive at the same time. Everyone would enjoy coming to work.
I would work on changing the culture. Showing appreciation for employees and letting them know they are what makes the company we work for great.
