Do you resist giving people recognition?
It’s easy to talk yourself out of recognizing people. Surely someone else will acknowledge them for the great things they do. Why do I have to say something?
But what if no one stops to recognize people.
How do you overcome this resistance?
I promise this will not surprise you.
From my learning sessions and surveys, the number one reason people give me for not giving recognition to peers, employees and managers is “time”.
I’ve confirmed this explanation from managers across North America, Europe, Middle East and India. Managers in thirteen countries in total all claim they don’t have time to recognize one another.
But is that the real reason? What’s stopping those you work with, and maybe even yourself, from recognizing the people where you work?
I don’t think time is the reason. (more…)
There are lot of things that can stop us from giving people the recognition they deserve.
I am going to give you the 5 most common barriers that people have given me as to why they don’t give recognition and I promise not to leave you hanging without some answers.
In fact, you will leave reading this blog post with solutions to overcoming each of these 5 barriers.
Here are the barriers:

- Not knowing your people
- Don’t know how to give recognition
- No expectation to give it
- Taking good work for granted
