Happy Wednesday!

I hope you are having a great week and growing closer to your goals!

Great leaders build great teams! It is very important that you are recognizing and appreciating achievements. In a recent Gallop Research survey, 87% of employees say they wouldn’t leave an organization if they felt cared for, recognize, and appreciated. 🫨 As leaders, we should acknowledge and celebrate individual and team accomplishments. This could look like implementing team member tuesdays or a pizza party for reaching a store goal.

Also, it is important to recognize the efforts and contributions of your team members, both publicly and privately. Recognizing team members both publicly and privately serves different purposes and has distinct benefits:

🔷 Public recognition: Publicly acknowledging team members' achievements or contributions can have several positive effects. Firstly, it boosts the individual's morale and self-esteem by highlighting their accomplishments in front of their peers and superiors. It creates a sense of pride and motivates them to continue performing at a high level. Additionally, public recognition fosters a positive team culture by showcasing exemplary behavior and performance. It sets a standard for others to aspire to and reinforces the values and behaviors that contribute to the team's success. It also promotes healthy competition and encourages other team members to strive for similar recognition.

🔶 Private recognition: Private recognition, on the other hand, plays a crucial role in building personal relationships and strengthening the leader-team member bond. Providing private recognition allows leaders to have one-on-one conversations with team members to express their appreciation, offer specific feedback, and discuss growth opportunities. Private recognition provides a more intimate and personalized experience that can be tailored to the individual's preferences and needs. It creates a sense of individual value and shows that their contributions are seen and valued on an individual level. Private recognition also provides a safe space for constructive feedback or addressing areas for improvement without the pressure or scrutiny that can come with public acknowledgment.

By recognizing team members both publicly and privately, leaders create a comprehensive and balanced approach to appreciation and feedback. Public recognition celebrates achievements and reinforces team values, while private recognition acknowledges the individual's unique contributions and strengthens the leader-member relationship. This combination of public and private recognition contributes to a positive team environment, enhances employee engagement, and fosters a culture of growth and appreciation.

How often are you giving recognition to those you serve?

Have you considered implementing rewards or recognition programs to further encourage and appreciate outstanding performance?
