When you are excited about a marvelous new purchase, it can be hard not to draw others’ attention to it — and if it’s something your employees could afford for themselves, by all means do so.

So if you are struck by the color, line, or shape of your employee’s coat, briefcase, or shoes, be sure to remark on it (always remaining within the bounds of propriety.) Your positive feedback will likely fuel future instances of sartorial splendor.
