Denver Nuggets head coach Michael Malone says building relationships and instilling belief are the keys to a strong work culture, according to a July 25 SmartBrief on Leadership report.

However, building relationships is not a skill most senior leaders are adept at, and instilling belief, which builds confidence in self, managers, and team members, is a less known quality, the report says.

Author of the report, S. Chris Edmonds, advises leaders to do three things to build a healthy work culture:

  • Define the desired work culture
  • Align all plans, decisions, and actions to that desired work culture
  • Refine practices and team members who do not embrace the desired work culture.

The Denver Nuggets won this year’s NBA Championship for the first time in its 47 years in the league.
