Good Job Week
Our feelings have important implications for how we view ourselves, our relationships and the world around us. This ability to maturely face and express these feelings can help us to meet life’s challenges without becoming overwhelmed or hopeless and without the need to dominate and force those around us.
Beverly’s Hot Tip For Building Resiliency and Celebrating Tell Someone They’re Doing A Good Job Week:
Don’t forget that your people want to do well. Before getting frustrated with someone remind yourself of that, and then decide how to provide constructive feedback.
When someone does something well, tell them that you notice. As a leader it is easy to forget to mention it. Most leaders wait until something goes wrong before they even think about giving employee feedback. And then it’s only negative. Block out some time during the week to reflect on positive contributions your team has made over the week
However, don’t overdo it. If you are sending people emails everyday then your positive feedback becomes diluted and meaningless.
Finally, don’t use phrases like “great job” or “nice work” as these are so vague as to be virtually useless. Use the opportunity to teach which of their terrific behaviors you would like to see repeated in the future.
