Employee Recognition: Reminders for Appreciating Employees


Leadership Tip of the Month by Ron Jasniowski

With the hectic pace we operate in, it can be difficult to remember to take a few moments to catch an employee doing something right and express appreciation for it. And all too often we find ourselves needing to deal with negative issues over and over. Then it gets harder and harder to express appreciation.


Try this: start your day with three large coins (or tokens) in your pocket. The coins are reminders to look for someone doing something right and recognize them for it. As you recognize them, put one coin in the other pocket. You should finish the day with all your coins in the other pocket. If coins don’t work for you, try Post-it notes or some sort of reminder token.


Let me know if you notice any improvement in morale and productivty.
