Four Thoughts On Recognition

On Giving Recognition

We crave to be recognized, to know that we matter. It is when the words of appreciation, genuinely communicated when the behavior is exhibited and the action is noticed, that it most matters

On Receiving Recognition

Allowing ourselves to receive kind words validates our contributions and strengthens our resolve. Accept words of kindness and return appreciation to the giver, acknowledge your own work and look to improve.

On Accepting the Blame and Spreading the Credit

While the team members complete the mission of any work group, the supervisor must bears the responsibility for any shortcomings and incorporate recognition into the work group's daily activities.

On Not Becoming a Hero Hijacker

Concentrating on the team encourages performance. The fastest way to alienate a work group is to appropriate their results. Every day an opportunity to thank a team member.
