This “motivational poster” shows how a bit of positive feedback goes a long way! My Audio Director was on the ball (as usual) and I responded with “You’re awesome!” He took a screenshot and quickly whipped up this poster and sent it to me, much to my delight. This five minutes of jovial feedback even made his Facebook status that evening.
Later the same day, I was meeting with my QA team and they asked me about how to structure a team. I then honestly told them that their team is a model example in the company. (I must note that I inherited the team. My predecessors did a fabulous job building that team!) They immediately responded with comments about their own awesomeness, so I shared this poster with them.
This afternoon a member of my QA team gave me some positive feedback on how I am doing. He was paying forward the awesome.
It’s amazing how fast criticism can spread in a business. We often get so busy, moving from one crisis to the next, leaving behind a tired team. We should all take a few minutes and spread a little awesomeness now and then. “Thank you” is a good start, but “You’re awesome” at the right moment goes even further.
Hope you have all had an awesome week!
