Appreciation & Recognition : Are You Comfortable?

If we mostly give our pets, our children, our attention when they misbehave. What are they likely to do to get connection and our attention?

If we mostly give our colleagues, our teams, our loved ones. Our attention when we are criticising, or need something. What relationship does that create? How does it make them feel?

To be different, to be more of what we love about us. To lead, at home and at work. We can change this.

We can begin creating habits to focus our brain on noticing the positives. To keep reminding ourselves of our brain’s default pattern to spot errors and negatives.

Most of all.

We need to get comfortable with sharing appreciation (of the qualities of the person themselves) and recognition (for what they do, or have done) every single week.

We often share criticism and certain ‘you haven’t done this’ types of feedback with relative ease (and we often don’t deliver it well).

What if I asked you to share one appreciation and one recognition with everyone you know well next week.

Does it make you feel uncomfortable at all?

Perhaps you might realise how little you speak or engage with certain people to even make this happen.

It can take a while for the other person to become comfortable receiving appreciation and recognition too.

Interesting isn’t it?
