Want People to Listen to You? Recognize Them

Want People to Listen to You? Recognize Them

If you want people to listen to you, recognize them when they do something right. Recognition is the acknowledgement of achievement, merit, service, etc. Recognition is a great motivator. Recognition gives people a reason to listen when you provide constructive advice, coaching and feedback. If people know that they will be recognized for doing things right, as well as correcting mistakes and making adjustments, they will be more open to listening to you and taking action. Leaders should always balance coaching and feedback with positive recognition and reinforcement.
