Recognition & Why
This episode is about recognition. Over 30% of people keep their job simply due to recognition. Recognition increases the appetite for more recognition. What we’re saying here is if you need to grow your company and you haven’t recognized your vendors, your salespeople, the people that build your website, anybody you touch that does things for you, you’re not growing as good as you could. Recognition triggers value inside of the person getting recognized. When you increase one’s internal value, you also increase their energy. What if there was a magic pill that you could give everybody working for you, including yourself? You’re your own employee. Let’s say you have twelve employees. I’m assuming you have an employee page.When you increase one’s internal value, you also increase their energy. Click To Tweet
What if you found a way to not only recognize these employees in your office but you also put that badge of recognition on the posted page for that employee? The world could see it and it’s stamped. His kids, his friends, her buddies and her friends could see it. Recognition triggers a value. Over 30% of our job force stay at a job not because of the pay but because they get recognized. It fills something for them. The increase in value is called self-concept by Brian Tracy. The increase in self-value, increases energy. They come in with more energy. They work later, get in early and shoot the breeze less. They want to get back to work. Recognition is both noticed and noted. Recognition moves other people to action, not just the people that got recognized. When others in an office notice somebody else getting recognized, it’s noted. It physically moves that person who wasn’t even recognized to do a little bit more so that they, in the future, can receive recognition.
If you want to get more done and find a way to grow without doing more work, recognition has been around since the dawn of time. It’s a good kind word or a pat on the back. You’ve got to do it in the right way. It’s called the right place, right time. You want to recognize people in front of others. You don’t want to just recognize someone in their office. You want to take advantage of the psychology behind recognition. For you to add value to the person you’ve recognized, it is critical to them that others see them receive the recognition. When you do it in an office with nobody seeing it, you’re hurting both the recipient and the people that could have recognized the recognition in others. I have done this in a couple of different periods of my life. I went so far out of my way to recognize people. The results were amazing. I’ve got to do a better job of this. I hope this helps.
