About this Episode

Every act of appreciation or gratitude creates a model that gets taken out of the workplace and into the world. We all crave acknowledgement so why don’t bosses do it enough? Bob n'Joyce jump into this topic on the power of boss praise and why it is so stubbornly resisted.

4 conclusions about a positive work culture:

  1. What you do and say (or not) can have a magnified impact.
  2. Command and control engrained habit lurks behind efforts to create a positive culture.
  3. Being seen and acknowledged is essential for energy and commitment to one’s work.
  4. Cosmetic, artificial attempts of appreciation don’t work. Simple and sincere works!
