Acknowledgment

How many times do you tell people around you (workers, employees, family, etc.) what they have done wrong or the mistakes they have made? Many times we spend more time making corrections and pointing out what is wrong than we do pointing out what is right and acknowledging a job well done.

Think back to when you were a child… How many times did you hear “yes” for every “no”? Most people are craving for acknowledgement and encouragement. As a leader, your job is to support people to get things right – focusing on what is right and acknowledging a job well done will give you many times more results that pointing out what is wrong.

One thought on “Acknowledgment

  1. Reflecting after reading this post, I have definitely acknowledge a lot what other have done wrong, in many occasion.

    Think back, would I like to be acknowledge for a job well done. The answer is YES.

    Therefore, I would focus on acknowledging others to support and encourage them to get things right. What a feeling!!!
