Empty praise is harmful. It sows seeds of doubt in the recipient and undermines the credibility of the person delivering it. Everyone knows when they are praiseworthy; some just have a harder time than others accepting it. But how do we give meaningful praise on a frequent basis if we’re not manufacturing it? Here are some tips to help you:
- Posting production metrics such as, “Completes per Hour per Person and Team” are an automatic form of public recognition for achievers.
- An absence of quality assurance issues is a sign that someone is growing. Speaking with the person at their workstation will make them feel seen and inspire them to keep up the effort.
- Finishing assigned orders early or on time is cause for celebration.
- Distribute frequent, achievable goals to different workers throughout the day or week and recognize those who meet them with verbal praise.
If you have a big goal like onboarding a new customer successfully; make sure to set clear expectations and communicate where the finish line is in advance. When your team crosses it, then celebrate it with a meal and be sure to toast the successful efforts of everyone while recognizing the extraordinary efforts of the few standouts.
