I said this about 250 years ago: “Mankind naturally and generally love to be flatter'd.”
Okay – so I was writing to ole’ King George and I had to use the king’s language (that’s why they call it “English.”) But in today’s lingo, I’m really saying, “show me the love.”
I like it when people compliment my inventive ways, my witty sayings and my suave, sophisticated way. I also like it when people clap for me when I’m winning the hot-buttered corn eating contest at the State Fair.
So, how about you? Do you like praise? Do you like it when you are noticed for doing good? What is the best kind of recognition at work? What can the Postal Service do to help managers give genuine recognition?
