Who's A Good Boy?
I spent a bit of time over Easter installing some new redgum sleepers and creating a new garden bed in the front garden. (The plan is for a rosemary hedge so we have a little more privacy AND tasty goodness for when we cook lamb.)
Can I tell you how much physical work was involved? Plus, those sleepers are 3 metres long and very heavy to throw around, level out, concrete in and all the other fun stuff!
Here are a few more pics.
You know what I like the most about this kind of project? It is having my gorgeous wife admire the work done and show her appreciation.
Basically, I am a big fluffy puppy wanting her to tell me what a good boy I am and what a good job I have done!
It is funny how one of the key things in the work place that gives great joy and reward to a person is Acknowledgement and Words of Praise, yet they are both incredibly rare.
I have heard managers say, "I don't need to tell them they do a good job, they get paid. That is enough. It is my responsibility to tell them when they have done a bad job, that's when I give them feedback."
Culturally when we give some one a compliment, they struggle to accept it. Responses like "Don't mention it", "No worries", "it's all good", "This old thing", "I bought it at the op shop", "it was nothing" are part of our every day vernacular.
Can I ask you to mention it?
Can I ask you to pay attention and praise those around you for doing what they would do anyway?
Can I ask you to acknowledge the effort of others?
Most people have a hidden sign saying, "Have I done a good job?"
It costs nothing but a small amount of time to give a compliment and acknowledge others and the payback is massive.
Your team will feel closer, feel prouder and pay more attention to team goals.
So Dear-Reader, in your life, who's been a good boy or a good girl?
