Recognition Tip #26: Monitor when you’re recognizing people.
I heard Dr. Terry Paulsen recommend putting five pennies or some kind of tangible tokens in your right hand pocket (if you’re a leftie just switch). Your goal is to strive each day to give five compliments or acknowledgements to different people. Each time you do, remove a penny or token and place in your left hand pocket. Now you can tally at the end of the day to see how you did.
