The Most Cost Effective Way To Engage Your People | Leadership and Management Development in Business | Scoop.it
Many books have properly outlined the power of effective praise and recognition. From Nelson’s books to Ken Blanchard and Spencer Johnson’s New One Minute Manager (and its predecessor) to Michael Lee Stallard’s Connection Culture (my favorite), the inherent need to create an approach and culture that validates your people is powerful and proven.

And for all the note card, bell ringing, and public praise methods, each author agrees on the most simple and cost effective method for engaging their people.
