Quick Tips

Build on Success

When your team pulls together, supports one another and achieves something organically – don’t let it go unnoticed! Take the time to publicly recognize the team’s accomplishment; go into detail to explain your observation, especially how you felt about seeing your team in action and what it means to you and the Company and provide specific examples of what the individuals on the team did. Allow for discussion and feedback among the group and a little exploration into what led up to such a win. I believe putting yourself and your feelings out there with your employees helps the team to affirm to do more of those positive things that led to the success!

Reward from Your Job

Many of us are so focused on making money, we miss the opportunities to find reward in helping people, in getting the benefits of giving back or in appreciating other pleasures. One of the reasons we join TAB is to create ways to realize not just our professional and business goals, but also realize these personal visions of our lives.
