On Giving Kudos

Last night I received a little note:

Wow! Nice job kid. 🙂

That one line went such a long way. I was willing to work harder and felt happy while doing so.

So for all you managers and non-managers out there, don’t be so tight fisted with your praise.

Let your friends, colleagues, and employees know when they’ve done a good job.. be ecstatic, use adjectives you wouldn’t normally use, show your love!

Feel free to plagiarize from the phrases below 🙂

  • Thank you! (We never say this often enough, and use exclamations!!)
  • Amazing work
  • You’re the best
  • You’re a rockstar
  • Awesome!
  • WOW!

Give it a try and see if it works.
