Motivating employees is one of the biggest challenges faced in business today.  Money and fear don't last long, what do you do?  It has been shown that the best influence on people is the use of two characteristics: recognition and appreciation.  

  • Recognize that I do my job, don't ignore me or take me for granted. 
  • Appreciate me when I excel, now, not later. 
Find reasons to say 'thank you' to your people, on a regular basis.  Human beings crave approval...give it to much as you give negative feedback.
