For most of us, we value recognition and achievement in our work. While tangible perks are nice, the audible reward of encouragement is a powerful motivator we aspire to hear.


Unfortunately, for many leaders, recognition is easier said than done.

And even more importantly, what should we be rewarding them for?

Yes, quality work and cultural enhancement are important; however, by keying in on behaviors, we call to attention what needs to be reproducible in our working arenas.
