Week Two - Public Recognition of Effort

Your mission:

Do this first:

  • Take 8 minutes to watch this video

Do this next:

  • Follow the three steps system for creating regular, weekly employee recognition.

    • Step 1 – Create a list of your team members
    • Step 2 – Make a conscious plan to notice the effort each team member is putting in each week
    • Step 3 – Commit to celebrating each team member’s effort once a week

Do this last:

  • At the beginning of each week, schedule some times (one minute is better than no minutes) to observe your team at work – and consider celebrating with them in the moment if it makes sense to do so

Remember: we’re not aiming for perfection. We’re aiming for progress. Focus more on the effort you’re making than the number of times you’re able to stick to your plan. Celebrate the changes, no matter how small they might seem.
