As soft skills go, it can be somewhat tricky – but this Entrepreneur article highlights just how important it is to give your employees a little love now and again.
While providing constructive criticism is essential as a leader, managers and leaders should also dish out some praise now and again. The article lays out five snips to do this:
- Take some time out and talk with your employees regularly.
- Let them know about the good things they have done in a sincere way.
- Reward any good ideas that your troops come up with.
- Praise productive failure – even if a campaign doesn’t produced the desired measurables, praise the effort if a lot of work went into it.
- Recognize milestones.
