People Need to Know They Helped

Whenever someone tells me how valuable the people on my team are to them, I encourage him to tell the individuals who were so helpful. Why? Because people need to know that they helped someone.

“Good leaders make people feel that they’re at the very heart of things, not at the periphery”. Everyone feels that he or she makes a difference to the success of the organization. When that happens people feel centered and that gives their work meaning.

It’s not a sign of weakness to let others know you value them. It’s a sign of security and strength. When you’re honest about your need for help, specific with others about the value they add, and inclusive of others as you build a team to do something bigger than you are, everybody wins.

 

TELL THE MEMBERS OF YOUR TEAM

WHY THEY ARE VALUABLE TO YOU
