People will be more motivated to deliver more when they are being recognized and rewarded. It will be impactful if the company is able to provide genuine appreciation to their employees. There are simple ways that can help us to improve and cultivate appreciation in the workplaces. As an example, we should start and end the meeting with personal acknowledgements or just even simple “thank you”. A manager may have a goal to provide ten sincere acknowledgements everyday, even for small achievements. This will make sure that employees will feel that they are being appreciated and they are doing the right things.
There should be at least 30 minutes of non-work event each two weeks, where people can be appreciated for their achievements. In this occasion, we should feel free to engage people in the team and we will feel appreacited. Managers should leave a note both on the desk and their mobile devices to be appreciative. In this case, we should be aware that appreciation isn’t only for good times. In fact, appreciation can be very effective when things don’t go too well. When a team leader has recently experienced a setback; a bit of appreciation will encourage him to do better and fix things that have gone wrong. When we want to appreciate others, we need to be authentic. Being being authentic, we are able able to express ourselves in a genuine manner. We could keep with our own unique authentic style. We should be able to express our sincere desire to make a professional relationship work. It takes some practice to recognize and use a good opportunity to be more appreciative.
There are different ways we can do to cultivate authenticity. People should already know our core values and they see how these core values are implemented. Core values can act as guideposts and anchors to let employees and other people know what we will do as leaders. Authenticity can also be achieved by telling the truth and we should never mislead anyone. We may clarify our core values by telling personal stories about how we overcome adversity, accomplish important goals and manage changes. We should honor our own commitments and invest in our own personal development. Employees will appreciate us more if we are able to lead by example. Professional relationships based on appreciation and authenticity is a win-win proposition. We should be able to bring positive attitudes, through positive feelings and thoughts. We should know how to deal with challenges and conver appreciation consistently. If we practice positive behaviors, we should be able to inspire a higher level of performance.
