Andrew Maxwell-Parish built a high five camera (a GoPro attached to a little microprocessor that turned on the camera for high fives) and filmed all the high fives he gave folks along the San Francisco waterfront – the piers, the Ferry Building, and Fisherman’s Wharf.
I’d say 95% of the folks he high-fived were grinning. I’d say that he probably made 100% of the folks he made contact with happier that day.
What would happen if you celebrated the existence of everyone you manage (either high-fiving or some other way)? How would the mood/energy/environment change or not change?
