76. Publically Recognize Others

It is good to reflect upon the positive contributions from others on your team and what impact they have had. It is even better to share your reflections publically. Every year one of my previous bosses would gather his full team together and publically acknowledge each individual’s key accomplishments.  This was doubly impressive because the team was quite large and he would not use any notes.  He felt it was very important to know what each team member contributed and to share each individual’s success and what he valued about them with the full team.  Not only did this form of recognition make each employee feel special and appreciated, all the other team members learned more about their colleagues, gained more respect for their peers and became a tighter knit team.
