Everyone has an invisible sign on their back. It says, “Notice me!”
To be a better leader, it is important to positively influence employees by creating a culture of both trust and respect. If you don’t notice the hard work people do or help them when they need assistance, then the best part of being a leader – communication – is lost! A word of encouragement goes a long way, as does an open ear to listen when someone has something on their mind.
Also consider the same sign on your own back. You know the things that you want to be noticed for. Perhaps it is being a good parent or child, a trustworthy caregiver, an exceptional athlete, a promising student, or a dependable worker. Start noticing people more and really see them for who they are and what they do. And then take my advice and say, “THANK YOU!”
