Had a great time yesterday speaking to a group of social workers in Fayetteville who work with homeless and challenging kids in the school system. Dedicated, smart, fun people.
We talked about catching someone doing something right each day. The habit builds a more positive workplace and life. We agreed that catching one of the kids they work with doing something right and praising may be the only good thing that happens to that kid that day.
Adults in the workplace are no different. We’re all on challenging paths. Catch someone doing something right and praise them (coworker, manager, executive, someone you manage…it doesn’t matter) and you are creating a better workplace and a more positive life…and that’s a great thing.
Who will you catch today?
