Most will agree: employees don’t leave bad jobs.
They leave bad managers.
The employee of the month program isn’t working.
There are only so many “atta boy’s” that can land effectively.
Without recognizing the hard work and sacrifices of your team, you alienate them and build resentment.
Resentment is not a great emotion for productivity.
The weird thing is that it really only takes a minute to make someone on your team feel like what they do matters.
And when people feel good about the work they’re doing, they tend to do more of it and they tend to do it better.
2 Minute Action:
Look someone in the eye and tell them why what they did was great.
Be specific. Tell them exactly what was so great and the difference it makes to your project.
