This is good stuff from O.C. Tanner about effective recognition. I love their tagline "appreciation changes everything." It does!
For me though appreciation is one side of the story. Accountability is the other side. Both lead people to achieve their aspirations.
The simple side is appreciation conversations. Accountability conversations are tougher. The more we have them the simpler they get!
Crucial to appreciation and accountability conversations are having aspirations and how they will be achieved documented. This means conversations can be focused.
Candid appreciation and accountability conversations and inspiring documentation of aspirations is an art and a practice. All three can be mastered.
