WOW – We have made it half way through November!
Where did this year go?
If we had to guess, you may be feeling some of the pressure of the last “to-do’s” before you feel like you totally lose your team’s focus before Thanksgiving – and then in all the busyness of the weeks after!
We’ve found, over and over, that when people feel appreciated, they tend to stay more engaged.
Think about it. When was the last time someone called you out in a meeting, or sent you an email that said … “Thank you for when you did ‘this’. The insight that you brought was just what I needed to hear.”?
As you remember that, you probably felt seen or valued – or more likely, you wanted to bring your “a-game” again!
So, as you are jumping into next week and wanting to keep engagement and morale high, think about each of your team members …
What are a 1 or 2 things that you’ve seen each of them do in the last week that was more than what you were hoping for or expecting?
Write those things down, and we’d encourage you to send them an email (maybe even copying everyone else who was working on that project); or tell them about it in your next one-on-one.
Let us know how it goes!
‘Tis the season to encourage your team!
