Dose of Leadership with Richard Rierson | Authentic & Courageous Leadership Development


Feb 7, 2020

A critical piece to the accountability equation is praise and recognition of your high performers.

Recognition & praise moves the culture & engagement needle more than anything else.

A HBR study in 2014 highlighted the top three drivers of engagement:

  • Consistent communication from senior leadership.
  • An understanding of how stakeholder's job feeds the strategy.
  • Sincere praise & recognition of high performers

The bottom line is that effective praise ultimately builds trust. People will ultimately feel valued and respected. When we become intentional & consistent about pointing out and recognizing when things are going well, then our people are going to start to feel like we have their best interest in mind.
