Good Leaders Focus on the Positive
Posted by Insightlink on 11/24/14
Acknowledging Contribution is the 6th 'C' of Employee Engagement
Manager’s who focus on the negative will cause their employees to shut down, switch off and eventually drive them to look for new jobs. So why not focus on the positives and impact job satisfaction in a meaningful way by recognizing contributions. As the saying goes, sometimes the best things in life are free and here are 5 free and easy ways to recognize your employee’s contributions in your organization by focusing on the positives not the negatives:
Reward good performance.
Provide more positive than negative feedback.
Show that you trust and appreciate your employees.
Avoid ego-based leadership
Act like you care
We all crave positive reinforcement and respond well to being acknowledged and appreciated for our contributions. So be quicker to point out when someone is right instead of pointing out what is wrong and give people the benefit of the doubt. Let’s assume the positive and, instead of complaining, let’s ‘See the best in people and watch how they fight to prove you right.’- Skip Prichard
