The article begins with these words:
His voice sings out as he introduces himself – as if he only ever expects pleasant surprises when strangers call him on the phone.
And it’s not long either before his first enthusiastic, appreciative “Exactly!” enters the conversation.
That has got to be just about the nicest thing anyone has ever written about me :o)
I’m then quoted as saying that praise:
- Is one of the easiest and most efficient ways of motivating people
- Is wildly contagious
- Takes no time and costs no money
- Doesn’t always have to be from manager to employee – anyone can praise anyone else
So what are you waiting for? Go praise someone already!
