The Classic Pamela Positive: Tell Your Team They Are Great And DON’T Give Them Anything To Do 

 

One of the most powerful things you can do to recognize someone on your team is to thank them.

You can  call them and say:

 

Youre doing a wonderful job today, and I wanted to thank you. Thats it. I just wanted you to know, and for you to take the time to recognize it. Please know how much I appreciate your consistent work and a positive attitude.”

Now here is the key… Rest in the thank you. Let the thank you be that whole and only part of the conversation.

Do not add on a to do.

It’s tempting. We as CEOs, leaders, managers have a lot we want to accomplish!

But this call is not about a ‘to-do.’ It’s about appreciation. It’s about reinforcing a positive relationship. It’s about building a long-term bond based on valuing the person.  

Just let the conversation rest in genuine appreciation.

Thanking You Because You Are You,

Pamela

The Classic Pamela Positive: “All the Other Things We Think Make Us Happy Are Actually Just Ways of Getting More Family and Friends.” – Daniel Todd Gilbert

 

“We are happy when we have family, we are happy when we have friends and almost all the other things we think make us happy are actually just ways of getting more family and friends.”

– Daniel Todd Gilbert

Let’s be grateful for all the happiness in our lives today. To truly cherish family, call a long-lost friend, or spend less time on work — and more time on someone.  

All the ‘someones’ in our lives are what give us joy. Appreciate!

Love,

Pamela
