Small wins . . .

A lovely idea from David Sturt and Todd Nordstrom:

“Every big win is an accumulation of many smaller wins. So why would you let those everyday successes slip by unnoticed? Keep a stack of cards at your desk so you can write a thank-you note when someone goes above and beyond for you. Bring in a treat for the team when you know they’ve been pulling some extra weight. Your appreciation will go a long way. In fact, research shows that timely, meaningful recognition is the no. 1 thing that empowers employees to do great work.”

Failing to applaud small wins can be a huge leadership mistake, but one which can be rectified so easily.
