Recognition is a powerful tool that can promote and support the new behavior, positive. When you’re a positive force for all those who are quick to recognize and destructive criticism is the last thing on his mind.
Often in leadership andÃƒâ€šÃ‚Â management program and I will ask participants if they believe that recognition is an important skill to modify the behavior and performance evaluation. After hands and it is generally accepted that the participants ask him to show me when and how to apply for recognition. Suddenly, the room is silent. It has been my experience that less than 20% of managers how to apply this valuable skill people. My question is whether these cribs not to apply the same recognition in the workplace, how to do the same thing at home with their spouses, friends and children? We denial of recognition in our society. Recognition can move mountains!
Some confuse the recognition with the rah-rah hype. Hype is when someone continues to support themselves slapped with unnecessary comments repeated over and over again. This approach can work in the short term, but over time is often seen as superficial, hypocritical and cons can be productive. Recognition when applied correctly is a skill that powerful managers, teachers, parents, spouses and others can use to show his appreciation, change or reinforce positive behavior.
The first step in the implementation of recognition is a general reference. For example, saying “Mary, you did a great job last week.” This is a starting point. You can recognize someone when they exceed expectations. You can recognize a person when expectations constantly. You can recognize a person who meets the expectations they have never met before. When he discovers her son, daughter, friend, spouse or do something, let them know about it. Search opportunities to recognize others. This is what people make positive force.
The second step to make the important recognition is to give a concrete example of what you liked. For example, you say “Mary, I realized how satisfied customer is assured that the last week and impressed me. “When you tell someone that you particularly like is greater recognition. It also increases the chances of repeating the desired behavior again. It works well in business and in life.
The third step is to talk about the personal qualities of the person. For example, “Mary, your patience and listening skills are obvious, he never lost his composure and focused on his client.” When you mention the personal qualities that make it real. Have you noticed what they did and that is more meaningful to the person to recognize.
The fourth and final step is to focus on the benefits. For example, “Thanks for the efforts of Mary, who left angry customer happy and we go back to the future. I’ve noticed and appreciate what you did.” These four steps can be used as a technique for breeding and there are a variety situations in which you can apply for recognition. People who are positive forces recognize others. Recognition can move mountains and is an important management skill to be a positive force for others.
