Building Office Success One Compliment at a Time
It’s a natural feel good to receive a compliment. Yeah! Does your high profile manager recognize you for doing a quality job? Don’t you always accomplish the mission and stay ahead of the game? You sure do. What would happen if you gave yourself an internal compliment? In your mind, you give yourself an award for a job well done. You deserve it, so don’t hold back.
What if you gave your boss a compliment? How about an award or a plaque from the team to your boss? Would you be reluctant out of fear of what your team would think if you thought this was a great idea? Perhaps your team could create a bond as tight as a sailor’s rope knot.
Can you give your co-workers a sincere compliment about their work habits and feel good about it? I know you aren’t the person in charge, but could you change the atmosphere in your environment by complimenting someone else’s success?
Can you grow from the middle of your organization when you become a source of energy to others? Do winners gain strength by disciplining themselves to turn inward for approval for a job well done? Your ability to see and comment on the contributions, dedication, and the many characteristics that make the people around you successful creates a game changer.
Do you want to continue to win by making everyone smile? Maybe your environment needs new leadership that has yet to be discovered? Could making you smile happen because you are self-contained when it comes to recognizing your achievements? You have your own sense of self-worth and you set high standards by challenging yourself.
Start today with one compliment carefully placed with sincerity. Will your office team look to you for approval? Will a poor office performer want a compliment as well? Could this be a move to increase productivity and maintain retention? What a great place to work! I smile because you can make this work!
