#524 58. Create self-esteem incentives for your employees.
 Create self-esteem incentives for your employees. We all work harder when we feel respected and appreciated. (Obvious, but really easy to forget.)
Every employee is different, so think about the type of praise and recognition that has meaning to each person who works for you. For example, some people like to be praised publicly; others prefer a quiet private word. Then build incentives based on what makes the most impact. Have an employee lead a presentation to upper management. Place an employee in charge of an important project. Give an employee the opportunity to train in another department.
Employees work hard because it’s their job, but employees work even harder when they feel good about themselves.
QUESTIONS for thinking it through:
How could this clarify my Reality?
How could this benefit if added to my Disciplines?
Who needs to hear this?
