Find the right time and place for recognition.
Make sure to give everyday recognition at a time that does not interfere with or impede work. And strive to know the individual’s recognition preferences and respect their wishes. Don’t perpetrate a recognition ambush that is totally unwelcomed! Even instant recognition may need to be scheduled into the day – even if only for 10 or 15 minutes. That way all work colleagues and project participants can dedicate their focus on the individual or team. Give the full attention that these recognition moments deserve.
