Recognition That Motivates: 3 Must-Have Components

Recognition That Motivates: 3 Must-Have Components | Exceptional Transcription & Business Solutions, Inc. | Scoop.it
1. What’s a critical behavior you want to see more of? Is there a strategic priority for the company that could be reinforced? Or a company value that needs highlighting to strengthen its role in the organizational culture?

At the heart of recognition, we want to make employees feel appreciated, but that doesn’t mean we can’t also tie-in the bigger organizational picture. Think about your goals and the company strategic framework to decide if there’s a concept from which you could build your recognition around and simultaneously reinforce a core message. It’s often said that what gets measured is what gets done – that’s true for recognition, too: what gets rewarded is what you’ll most likely see more of.

2. Is there a specific time of year that team members are called upon to meet heightened demand and could benefit from extra acknowledgement of that hard work?

This would be in addition to a steady drumbeat of recognition throughout the year. No matter what you decide is the best cadence for formal recognition, remember that informal recognition can happen year-round in the form of a personal word of thanks and appreciation during a team huddle. The key is to do it frequently, sincerely, and in as specific a way as possible.

3. What type of recognition would best resonate with your unique workforce or the individual you are honoring? Is it public acknowledgment? A celebration event? Or something tangible?

In recognition, one size does not fit all. One individual might value a public display of gratitude during a meeting, while others might prefer a simple, private word of appreciation. Be aware of how members prefer to be recognized or what’s culturally appropriate.

4. How can you best structure recognition so members of the team are inspired to participate and feel engaged in the process?

Crowdsourcing can certainly be applied to award programs as well. Who better to recognize an unsung hero than those who work side-by-side with him or her on a daily basis? Consider building excitement and involvement by taking nominations by email or secret ballot, or there are even apps available that allow teams to formally give one another kudos.

Three Must-Haves for Recognition
Once you’ve thought through the answers to these questions, you can begin to formulate the structure of your recognition. In doing so, remember these key guidelines:

Make it personal
Make it meaningful
Make it specific
When you do that, the recognition not only resonates with the recipients, but it helps others to understand expectations and commit to demonstrating similar behaviors.

Elevate your conversations in 2018

Elevate your conversations in 2018 | Exceptional Transcription & Business Solutions, Inc. | Scoop.it
State your intention
Know your intention before an interaction to avoid getting distracted. For example, “My intention for this conversation is to make sure we are on the same page,” is a better direction than shooting from the hip and talking about all the things that aren’t working in the relationship.

What’s required? Setting intention requires you to let go of the seduction of blame.  Intention guides your thoughts and helps you focus on future outcomes versus past mistakes.

3. Stop playing verbal ping-pong
It’s easy to fall into a black hole about who is right, who is wrong, and what’s not fair. These communication habits indicate the tendency to get distracted. Stop taking the bait and you’ll elevate the conversation.

What’s required? Become aware of your triggers. Triggers often include the need to change or fix someone else, the need to be understood or the need to prove a point. Instead, work from your intention (tip No. 2) and then redirect the conversation.

4. Become curious

Five Components of Good Feedback

Five Components of Good Feedback | Exceptional Transcription & Business Solutions, Inc. | Scoop.it

“Everyone needs feedback in order to improve. You would be hard-pressed to identify any profession where it isn’t a central component to success. As I have written in the past, there is nothing more vital to our professional roles than good feedback that paints a picture not only of what we are doing well but areas where we can either become much better or outright improve. It helps us to develop both goals and objectives that guide our work in our respective roles. For the most part, everyone wants good feedback so that they can become better. Jon Windust looked at some research that supports and illustrates how feedback positively impacts performance:
"The researchers found that professionals receiving detailed feedback on a monthly basis outperformed all other groups involved in the study. Those receiving detailed monthly feedback improved performance on their key complaint

Hire the Best People with These 6 Interview Questions 

1. Are you driven by the determination to succeed or the fear of failure?

There is no right answer to this question. What I’m looking for is what motivates this person to work hard. I do not judge ambition; it comes in many forms. Notice, by the way, that I’m asking if fear of failure “drives” him or her, not “paralyzes.” See the next question for more on that.

2. Why are you successful?

Successful people think a great deal about what they are doing and why. They always have a definitive and purposeful answer to why they have been successful. They also have a deep need for success that always eclipses their fears.

3. If today were your last day on earth, what would you most regret not having accomplished?

Regrets are horrible bedfellows. I’ve found that people who live with a keen awareness of what they need to accomplish are driven to be creative and resourceful; yes, they’re exactly who I want on my team. By the way, one of my favorite responses to this question was from a candidate who was also a private pilot: “Can you give me an approximate altitude above the Earth?”

4. How is who you are now consistent or inconsistent with the person you were at 12 years old?

To know a person, you need to know his or her journey. This single question may tell you more about the person you’re talking to than just about anything else you could ask. Don’t laugh this one off. Stick with it, and dig deep. It can take a bit of time, but it’s worth it.

Unwrapping 5 gifts of leadership

Unwrapping 5 gifts of leadership | Exceptional Transcription & Business Solutions, Inc. | Scoop.it
ift 1: Prepare for success
Many of the leaders I spoke with highlighted the importance of remaining curious. They emphasized the value of learning as much as you can from colleagues and contacts, staying abreast of industry and competitive trends, and understanding how true value is created in your business. This is the depth of knowledge that positions you for success. It’s also important to prepare through formal education and by leveraging the leadership training offered by your organization.

Jocelyn Johnson, global director, value propositions and insights, at GE Healthcare, advises: “Get into any leadership programs you can. I wish there had been a program like GE’s Commercial Leadership Program when I was first starting out. It gives you a leg up (in your career) that others don’t get.”

Gift 2: To find your passion, start within
A recurring theme in many of the responses I received highlighted the importance of developing deep self-knowledge in order to discover and follow your passions. Beyond this, knowing yourself well supports you in exhibiting authenticity as a leader and staying focused on the present moment, so you’re able to experience the greatest work fulfillment.

“I have come to learn that my leadership manifested itself more naturally and effectively when I was positioned in the roles that indeed were self-gratifying,” said Leroy Jackson, managing director, Accenture Technology. “This revelation has now helped me to realize the importance of being diligent upfront with seeking and accepting opportunities that are truly aligned to my passion. This alignment will certainly benefit me … but more importantly … it will favorably impact the members of my organization who count on my direction and guidance.”

Gift 3: Plan, but with an open mind
