When was the last time you received praise for your work? How does a single compliment affect you? Does it make you perform better? Does it inspire you to work harder?
Feedback may either boost your self-confidence or make you want to give up. Giving and getting compliments from coworkers enables you to feel good about yourself and satisfied when you’ve helped someone else. To create a more supportive work atmosphere, no one in a team should deny their teammates access to one.
Here are… 𝟓 𝐁𝐞𝐧𝐞𝐟𝐢𝐭𝐬 𝐨𝐟 𝐆𝐨𝐨𝐝 𝐅𝐞𝐞𝐝𝐛𝐚𝐜𝐤 🤩
1. 𝐎𝐟𝐟𝐞𝐫 𝐑𝐞𝐜𝐨𝐠𝐧𝐢𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧 🔍
Giving employees recognition for their efforts requires less effort but means a lot to them. The simple act of praising employees for their dedication and great work can sometimes be all that is required to make them feel valued and appreciated. This appreciation could even encourage appropriate conduct within the team.
2. 𝐈𝐧𝐜𝐫𝐞𝐚𝐬𝐞 𝐄𝐧𝐠𝐚𝐠𝐞𝐦𝐞𝐧𝐭 🔥
People tend to stay away from things that will hurt them and get close to those that will make them happy and fulfilled. Rewarding your team makes them feel good about their current position and motivates them even more to interact with the management, driving them to initiate innovative proposals that will benefit the whole company.
3. 𝐁𝐨𝐨𝐬𝐭 𝐏𝐫𝐨𝐝𝐮𝐜𝐭𝐢𝐯𝐢𝐭𝐲 💯
Teams that received constructive criticism from their bosses or team members outperformed teams that received no feedback at all by 12.5%. Positive feedback makes you feel like you’re doing a great job and that you’re moving in the right direction, which is enough to motivate you to finish your tasks on time.
4. 𝐈𝐧𝐟𝐥𝐮𝐞𝐧𝐜𝐞 𝐖𝐨𝐫𝐤 𝐂𝐮𝐥𝐭𝐮𝐫𝐞 💪🏻
By providing constructive criticism, you set the standard for good performance at your company. Reward your employees who have shown outstanding behavior to inspire others as well. Establish a more encouraging workplace that will motivate your staff to work for your business for as long as feasible.
5. 𝐏𝐫𝐨𝐦𝐨𝐭𝐞 𝐃𝐞𝐬𝐢𝐫𝐞𝐝 𝐁𝐞𝐡𝐚𝐯𝐢𝐨𝐫𝐬 😍
Positive reinforcement actively encourages employees to replicate the actions that their managers or employers want them to. Inspire your team members to display proper behavior at work by showing them what it should look like in the first place. Be their role model, and they will follow.
Even though some people thrive on criticism, only providing negative comments can lower morale, impede productivity, and perhaps leave employees feeling undervalued or unclear of their contribution to the business. To create a workplace that is more encouraging and supportive, you have to learn how to be positive and upbeat. 🥳 #RubenLicera #LiveTheGreatLife #GoodFeedback
