Glassdoor recently published a new slide deck called 25 Tips from Top CEOs.

It’s comprised of management advice from some of the highest-rated CEOs from its annual Employees’ Choice Awards, which are based entirely on ratings from employees. These CEOs run companies based in the U.S., the U.K., and Canada.

A lot of them are simple ideas that won’t necessarily blow you away, but they’re great advice nonetheless for anyone in a leadership position.

Glassdoor spoke to some of the highest-rated CEOs for this report.

The advice falls into the following four categories: trust; open communication; teamwork; and motivating employees.
