Take back your power from recognition

In Performance, Success & Mindset Reset, Video by admin

Employee Engagement surveys often highlight a lack of recognition as a significant disengagement factor for employees. Isn't it time we turned this stat on it's head?

Does recognition or a lack of recognition hold power over you?

I don't know about you, but allowing my motivation levels to be negatively impacted by whether or not someone else recognises my effort feels a lot like giving my power away.

I think its time to take back that power.

Recognition is a powerful tool to motivate and energise.

How simple is it to say thank you, I see you, that was an exceptional piece of work, I appreciate all of your effort...?

Totally simple to say, yet an often neglected and overlooked tool to motivate and energise others. I thought this little video clip would be a good reminder that you have this little super power in your artillery and you can never run out; use it.

On the other hand, if you feel drained and dis-engaged due to a lack of motivation. You're putting in the effort, going the extra mile... a thank you would be nice.

It totally would, but allowing yourself to lose energy and focus because someone else is not using their super-power should never be the reason that you stop moving.
