“Catch someone doing seven things right before you point out one thing they’re doing wrong.” Peter Bregman suggests that 7:1 ratio in the work environment. We think he makes a valid point in all areas of life.
Here are seven things you could compliment at work:
- A great idea
- Initiative (you know, doing without asking)
- Overcoming a hurdle
- A positive attitude
- Surpassing a goal
- A finished project
Of course, there are many more, but hopefully, this gets us thinking.
Try it out. See what happens.
