Praising an employee for a great job sounds like a simple exercise, but not all managers get it right, and ineffective praise can do more harm than good.
Done properly, recognition is a great tool for boosting employee morale and for increasing workers engagement and productivity.
In this course you will learn exactly how to go about recognizing and showing your appreciation for a great job so that you engage, energize and help build employee confidence in their own abilities and greatness.
You will learn when to express your appreciation, how to tailor your recognition so it produces the greatest impact for each individual. You will be shown how to get the balance right, both in terms of frequency and when and if to acknowledge the team or just the individual.
It is also important of acknowledge the unsung heroes within your direct reports. This course will show you how to do this.
You will also learn what the common pitfalls are that you need to avoid to ensure your praise doesn’t backfire. This will ensure you don’t end up discouraging instead of encouraging.
How you go about delivering praise will determine its impact and effectiveness. This course guides you through the process to ensure you achieve the right outcomes.
The course includes quizzes that you are invited to complete so that you can test your knowledge and understanding, and there is also an Action Plan to keep you on track with ‘how and when’ you acknowledge your staff efforts and achievements.
This course is all about Positive Feedback designed to reinforce desired behaviours and/or performance. It is an essential complement to Constructive Feedback designed to addresses performance areas or behavioural standards in need of improvement.
As a bonus for you, I have transcribed the wording of this course into an eBook and that is available for you to download as an easy reference.
