characterized by tight deadlines, difficult challenges, stretched capabilities,
and long hours. Giving and receiving recognition energizes individuals and
teams and builds momentum to tackle the next tasks and activities.
for your hard work feels great. It’s tempting to accept it by saying, “Thank
you, I have been working hard." The best response is to share praise with
those who contributed to the success and detail how they contributed, which
maximizes the distinction. Saying, “Thank you, we all worked hard to hit this
deadline, and Tim and Sandeep created a focused plan to get us there,” broadens
the recognition and signals that you are a humble leader. People will notice
off your acceptance by connecting the team’s capabilities with future
achievements. By saying something like, “We’re on a roll,” or “We’re ready for
the next challenge,” you encourage the behaviours that got the results and
create the momentum for success to become a habit.
Keep a list of acknowledgements to motivate yourself and the team in challenging times and to create a project summary at the project’s end.
