Guy Luzon gave an insight into his management style when he said he gives his strikers freedom.
A 3-0 win over Huddersfield meant eight goals in the last three games for previously goal shy Charlton.
And after the game, Luzon, who joined the Addicks two and a half months ago, praised two goal forward Tony Watt and partner Igor Vetokele and said he encourages them to enjoy their football.
"My philosphy is that in defence we have rules and each player knows exactly what they should do," said the head coach. "This is one of the reasons in the last four games we have three clean sheets.
"In offence, I give them advice and I put them in position but I say to them they need to bring their quality and talent to the position. They play how they want. They don't have to be like robots.
"It's very important they come to the game and smile."
In the end, Luzon thought his side should have won by more. But he was delighted with the overall performance at a near full ground, boosted by a £5 ticket special.
"The goals were great but we could have scored more," he said. "We missed three, four or five goals but we were happy with the result.
"My target as coach is not only to bring the result - it's the way we bring the result. And today with a full stadium, we wanted the fans and the people at the club to go home with a good feeling. But it's also very important for me the way we play.
Charlton prepare for the visit of Nottingham Forest on Tuesday night and Luzon is hopefully many of those in the 25,500 crowd will return.
"The atmosphere was great," he said. "I hope on Tuesday all the fans that were there today will come back because we deserve that.
"I'm sure all the people enjoyed it and I know when I enjoy something I go back. I hope they will come back."
