Make your recognition authentic.
You can be authentic by making genuine eye contact when communicating. Learn to be very specific when recognizing what the person accomplished. Tell people how what they did has made a difference to others. Create connections with the person you are recognizing and don’t let external factors distract you from the magic of a recognition experience. Authenticity comes from being true to you.
