I would like the community to provide some feedback on how they have successfully changed the culture/work ethic within the organization. Naturally, I would like my employees to be more focused, and yes, work more hours. In the absence of dangling a financial carrot in the form of higher salaries/bonus, and especially in this work-from-home-whatever-goes office culture, what strategies have worked? I'm afraid "leading by example" is not yielding any results.

I understand the lower middle market, perhaps doesn't always attract the best talent pool, but how does a motivated operator maximize employee productivity, increase the accuracy of operations, and motivate employees to not simply clock out at 4:30 PM without pursuing the hard-lined, rules-based boss approach?
