    Twins for Success

    There is always a bottom line. Also there are some essentials or backbone items to be used to achieve success.

    Appreciation is one of these basic ingredients. In our daily social interactions, we often forget this mild-mannered trait. Often bosses take the attitude that I am paying them to do a good job, why compliment them? The trouble is, that is not how human nature is wired. The leader doesn’t understand that money is the only reward for work well done. The human spirit thrives on appreciation. Verbal positive comments are like instant gratification which validates one’s self-worth and fills one’s bank of satisfaction.

    Affirmation is confirmation that one is recognized. There is a universal fear of becoming a mere number among the six billion people living. If that feeling occurs at work the employee thinks that what I do is of no effect to the company. People want to be noticed and told they are important and an integral part of the company or an integral part of our social circle.

    These often neglected twins are appreciation and affirmation. I challenge all leaders and you be intentional with distributing these necessary twins. One will be surprised at the amount of group spirit that can be generated this way. Please don’t turn me down. Try it!
