We all want to feel appreciated. It's one of the most powerful motivating forces behind human behavior. And it is a key factor in personal and team productivity.
How do compliments affect our productivity? It's simple: when we feel appreciated, we tend to work harder and smarter. We go the extra mile and do more.
Yet there are so many reasons why we are not shown the appreciation we may deserve, or given the compliments that would go so far to build our self-esteem.
In this episode, we illustrate these reasons. We outline ways to avoid the temptation to not compliment, and we set out a sure-fire way to compliment that will bring out the best in others, and build your own stature as a leader.
