When was the last time you praised one of your co-workers?
When was the last time one of them praised you?
Giving praise is something we can all easily do – and its effect on the workplace can be powerful.
In a Gallup survey, 90% of the people said they were more productive when they worked around positive people – and 99% said they wanted a more positive environment at work.
Just telling someone, “Good job!” every now and then can:
• Make them more productive.
• Encourage them to work more cooperatively with other employees.
• Contribute to them staying with their organization longer.
Remember: When you give a compliment, don’t just pay lip service – be specific.
