What are you thankful for?

CEO, therapist and life coach, Dr. Laura Trice shows us in this 3 minute TED Talk video below that genuine praise is what we all need and should not be shy to ask for.

We can all learn to apply this in the workplace, as Laura has done in her own company. The following is how she praises her employees into three categories:

1) Verbal praise, recognizing a job well done. This is also effective with vendors and customers;

2) Compensation-based praise happens here twice a year; and

3) Individual spontaneous gifts or benefits based on exceptional performance, so long as they are not overused.

I think we can all benefit when we take the time to thank someone for the work that they do.

Thank you.
