Recognition. We’ve been trained to believe that everyone needs it.
I think so, but something that’s lost in the recognition/engagement market is that for many workers, getting recognition in the widely accepted formats can backfire.
The reason I’m thinking about this is simple. I was recently asked to speak to a group of managers by a premiere provider in the talent management space. One of the features of the meeting after I spoke was a small spiral notebook of great ideas for the managers in question to use to create a power month of recognition for their teams.
