How to give irresistible Praise: ‘I saw what you did and I really like it. WELL DONE!’
We repeat behavior that is reinforced with praise. We retreat from behavior that is reinforced with threats.
Put up or shut up. Put others *up* in your conversations. When tempted to put them down, shut up. How to stay up? Put up.
The behavior you recognize is the one that gets repeated. Look for the good and acknowledge it before it gets deleted.
The proper tone at the Top? Tooting the horn of recognition of all contributors from the bottom up. Sounds great. Motivates great.
The THRILL of ovations and praise of many pale in comparison to the FEEL of Peace and Love from attending to the needs of ONE.
