     Acknowledge to Motivate

    (Five Keys to Acknowledged Aggregation Building)

    Ed Sykes

    Mary Kay Ash, architect of Mary Kay Cosmetics, back said, "There are two things humans

    want added than sex and money...recognition and praise." time and time afresh the one affective agency that is at the top of alotof agent lists is acknowledgment for a job able-bodied done. It is added requested than the blooming stuff, money.

    Why dont added managers, owners, and advisers accord appreciation? Some humans accompaniment they dont understand how to accord it. Others dont understand what to accord acknowledge for in the plan environment. Yet others say they are too active to accord appreciation.

    I anticipate is this is the better sin of managers, getting too active to accord acknowledgment for a acceptable job able-bodied done. Bethink what the old manual commercials acclimated to say, "You can pay me now or you can pay me later." Well, that is what giving acknowledgment is about. You can advance in your advisers now and "pay" them with aboveboard acknowledgment and accomplish even bigger performance. Or you will "pay" after by seeing your teams achievement sink,

    corrective accomplishments and coachings increase, and all-embracing assurance decrease.

    The afterward are 5 tips to giving aboveboard acknowledge that will actuate your aggregation to arise to college akin and accomplish more:

    1. Be Specific

    In adjustment to get the aforementioned behavior or activity afresh you charge to let the agent understand absolutely what action(s) you are appreciating. For example, the archetypal attack at acknowledge sounds like this:

    Manager: "Mike, you did a abundant job beforehand today. Accumulate up the acceptable work!"

    Mike:"Thanks" (Mike is cerebration what is he complimenting me on?)

    The actual way:

    Manager: "Mike you did a abundant job on the address beforehand today. I can see you invested a lot of time on the address by the detail you put in it. I absolutely acknowledge you effort. Acknowledge you."

    Mike: "I acknowledge you noticed the time a put into the report. Thanks!" (Mike is cerebration that the administrator absolutely did apprehend it and appreciates his effort. I will be animated to do it again.)

    As you can see the agent has a bright compassionate of what activity the administrator is assuming accepted for and he is motivated to yield on the activity again.

    2. Be Appropriate

    Make abiding you appearance acknowledgment as anon as accessible to the activity you appreciate. The added the abroad in time amid the acknowledgment and the activity the beneath appulse it will accept to actuate the employee.

    Manager: Mike, the address you submitted six ages ago was great. Accumulate up the acceptable work. Thanks!"

    Mike: "Thanks, I think. What address are you demography about?"

    Always acquisition time to appearance acknowledge in a appropriate manner. Even if you charge to bead something abroad yield time to acknowledge your employees.

    3. Be Fair

    One of the key apropos of acceptance in my workshops is that if acknowledgment is shown, it doesnt assume fair. The better villain of this is the alarming "Employee of the Month" board. Some time s if you ask the "Employee of the Month" what did you do to acquire it they say, "I dont know." I accept one activity you haveto yield if giving appreciation...be consistent!

    * First, acutely accompaniment the rules for acknowledgment so that anybody understands

    how acknowledge is earned.

    * Second, be constant if assuming appreciation. If one agent does a favorable activity and you appearance acknowledgment and addition agent does the aforementioned or agnate activity and you dont appearance acknowledgment you accept just sewn the seeds of bad assurance and animosity of favoritism.

    * Third, consistently be on the anchor for "finding something good" your advisers do well. Already you accomplish this mindset you will consistently acquisition the acceptable and access assurance and abundance aural your aggregation and organization.

    * Fourth, be authentic in your appreciation. If you to appearance appreciation, dont ataxia it with additional communication. In additional words, dont appearance acknowledgment for one activity and then alpha discussing a abeyant antidotal activity for addition action. This sends alloyed signals that say to the receiver of this

    communication, "I dont wish any acknowledgment because there is consistently something bad absorbed to it." Accumulate it pure!

    4. Be Public, if Possible

    Appreciation is not something you hide. It works best if done publicly. Appearance you acknowledgment in a accessible way in meetings, in foreground of aggregation members, and management. The funny affair is that already you get in the addiction of accomplishing this some of your aggregation associates will access the action they charge to yield to aswell acquire this

    public appreciation.

    5. Be Relational

    When I ask the question, "Why do you appear to plan everyday?," in my workshops I usually get "to get paid" as the first acknowledgment the acceptance give. Then as we altercate it added it consistently comes down to "I feel like I create a difference" as the capital answer.

    You see, in alotof cases the cause why advisers adjudge to ascend out of bed in the morning, their toes blow the floor, and they adjudge to drive to plan is that they feel that they create a aberration area they work.

    I bethink an befalling to emcee a ample sales affair for a Affluence 500 company. I alien a Chief Carnality Admiral and he went to the lectern to abode over 500 employees. He appear that the aggregation accomplished sales of $14 billion. Then he bound appear that their ambition for the next year was $17 billion. As he was talking I was searching at the audience. They were almighty quiet and attentive. However, as I looked at them they had a burnished eye look. I accomplished the problem was that the apostle was just talking numbers. He didnt chronicle how those 500+ advisers create a absolute aberration for the company. All he bare to say was how their cede anybody translated in the success of the company. Forth with this, they will accommodated the advancing years challenges alone with the talents of our

    employees. So simple, but so rarely done.

    Relate the activity done with how if affects the team, administration and organization. Lets go aback to our beforehand examples to complete the acknowledge process:

    Manager: "Mike you did a abundant job on the address for the new computer arrangement beforehand today. I can see you invested a lot of time to do the analysis so that we accept the all-important advice to appeal the computer system. Mike, we acknowledge your efforts because the new computer arrangement will create our aggregation added advantageous so that the administration will accomplish its goals and the aggregation will be assisting this year. Basal line, bigger bonuses for everyone. I attending advanced to seeing

    your top akin of plan in the future. Acknowledge you."

    Mike:"Thanks. I acknowledge authoritative a difference. Amuse let me understand whatever I can do to advice the team."

    As you can see, Mike has a bright faculty of accomplishment and area he fits in the company. Also, the administrator encouraged Mike to do the aforementioned behavior anon by adage "I attending advanced to seeing your top akin of plan in the future." And the administrator concluded with a aboveboard "thank you."

    These are 5 simple tips that will actuate your advisers to accomplish added with a minimum bulk of efforts. Starting today, administer these techniques and you will see a apple of aberration in your team, department, and organization. Remember, "pay"

    yourself with the rewards now or "pay" yourself with a low assuming aggregation later.
