Be precise when recognizing employee efforts to avoid collateral damage
from Woodworking Network
Recognizing employee accomplishments is an essential part of management leadership. Unfortunately, most of the time owners and managers carpet bombing “good jobs” and doing more harm than good. In order for praise to be effective, you must use "LASR" precision. In an effort to provide positive feedback, many managers will drop “good jobs” like so many tons of dumb bombs. But as often as not, employees that haven’t done anything praiseworthy share in the benefits. Indiscriminate praise is like carpet bombing a target, you don’t know where it is going to fall — and while it may do some good, it will also result in unintentional collateral damage.
