FIre Up Performance with Praise

Management Tip: Catch People in Act of Doing it Right 

At a recent networking function, I hugged a business associate and praised her for her recent accomplishments.  She said “I wish they treated me this way at work.” 

Cheering womenHow sad that so many workplaces don’t emphasize praise, but rather just numbers and performance.  While sales are more important than ever, the people making the sales are often overlooked.

To motivate your people, you MUST praise them, find out what is important to them and reward them.  A handwritten card can go a long way.  Catch people in the act of doing something right and specifically praise them for a job well done.  Go on an active search for success in your people.
