Teach others about the positive impact of recognition.
Be a “recognition revolutionary” and share examples of employees who have benefited and changed from being regularly acknowledged. You have already taken the first step by setting the example yourself. Now you must recruit other fellow recognition champions. Help your teammates and colleagues make recognition a part of their everyday experience. Consistent, daily giving of recognition will make recognition an integral part of your organizational culture.
