Are You Praising Your Employees Enough

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.
