thank you Appreciation

The key to unlocking potential 
or an omission that will sabotage performance

Thank you. Two words that have become taken for granted in a world that far to often looks at what we are getting, rather than what we are giving. Those two words when authentically given, can replace any award that you can bestow on a sponsor, employee, board member or colleague. As they also can be the words that optimize employee engagement and their performance.

Many employees crave to know they are having an impact on an organization’s success. There are many forms of appreciation, and as a leader in your life or a team, knowing how to understand the appropriate way to appreciate a individual based on what they value, is essential to receive their best. Providing appreciation in a manner not reflective of an individuals style, can do more harm than good.

In this interactive presentation, Suzanne F. Stevens, CSP will share how through appreciation you can increase someone’s engagement and performance while having them experience a hightened sense of purpose.
