No matter the job we have or the industry we work in – we are all hungry for praise and starving for honest appreciation.
Marshall B. Rosenberg, the author of “Nonviolent Communication”, spent some time consulting with many social service agencies and industrial organizations. He was struck by how often people expressed a hunger for appreciation on the job. “No matter how hard you work you never hear a good word from anyone. But make one mistake and there’s always someone jumping all over you.”
When was the last time you were appreciated? Or when did you show appreciation to your team?
