A Case of Pop on a Hot Day

When researching Make Their Day, I asked employees who they most wanted recognition from. One employee said,

“My vote is still with the line supervisor or manager who brings in a case of pop at break time on a hot day…that’s a tough act for any organization to beat.”

This employee is offering an example of a supervisor who respects his team. Nothing will engage your team more effectively than treating them with respect. These things all demonstrate respect:

  • Listen well.
  • Ask for team members’ opinions.
  • Learn what they want/need.
  • Consider all reasonable requests.
  • Trust them.

What can you do today to demonstrate your respect for your team?
