High Five

The positive benefits of acknowledging others and showing appreciation are huge and is something any of us can do regardless if we're in a leadership role or not.

It truly is one of the most important things a leader can do to inspire, motivate and empower others so long as its done so genuinely.

Former NBAer, Doug Christie once shared a story with me from his playing days in Toronto. It was during a timeout when his team mate, Damon Stoudamire publicly acknowledged the job he was doing on defence against a opposing player.

He went on further to describe the importance of this in helping to maintain a positive atmosphere and strengthen team cohesion.

To help further the discussion of acknowledgement is Mike Robbins. Mike is a professional speaker and author and talks to audiences about the importance of appreciation and recognizing the actions of others.

Here's what Mike said about appreciation and leadership.

Tune in to the next edition of HCL Radio to hear more from Mike.
