Everyone loves a countdown. Think New Year’s Eve, the start of old movies, and David Letterman’s Top Ten. The 4s compiles decades of experience in recognizing excellence into Advice 4U. Ladies and gentlemen…The 4s. Sometimes people are screaming for recognition without anyone noticing. You’d be surprised what kind of difference recognition will make, if only you could recognize the signs that people crave it. 4 Clues it’s Time to Recognize
- Special Occasions. This might seem obvious, but you’d be surprised how often special occasions go unnoticed. National Holidays and birthdays aren’t the only times people deserve a pick-me-up. Anniversaries are a great time to give someone the shout-out they’ve always deserved. I’m not just talking wedding anniversaries either. I always try to remember to give my employees the recognition they deserve every time the anniversary of their start with the company rolls around.
- The Slump. It’s usually not hard to tell when someone is having a rough week. I call it the slump because usually said individual slumps down into their chair and wears the same stone cold, glossed over look on their face. If you ever spot the slump, it’s time give that person some positive energy!
- It’s Monday. Monday is always a hard day. No one likes coming down from the dream land that is the weekend. It’s the perfect day to praise someone and give them that extra pep in their Monday step.
- Someone Recognized You. It’s time to pass it on, and Awards4U is here to help.
Don’t let these signals be the only indication that it’s time to throw recognition someone’s way. Saying thanks is the way to go 4 the entire year!
