The book says,
When you see a coworker's extrodinary effort to get a project completed or to do a particular task well, offer some heartfelt praise. A word or two of encouragement can mean a lot to that person. Plus, people tend to be more productive when they know that their efforts are appreciated.
If you are a manager or leader and don't feel you are getting the best effort from your workers, think about what you can do to raise the morale and set the tone for a friendlier, supportive work environment. Make it a priority to appropriately praise and reward dedication and effort on the job.
Although I am not a manager or a supervisor I have worked in those positions in the past. I know how important it is for people to know that they are doing a good job. In my department at work there are several who stepped out into leadership position this past busy season.
All of them did a great job! They were helpful and supportive even on days when they were stressed.
Just For Today: I will remember to say thank you to coworkers today.
people may forget what you did,
but people will never forget how you made them feel.
