The Power of Affirmation
Have you ever wondered if anyone noticed what you did all week to make the team successful? Affirmation is something that we all crave. Some crave it in unhealthy ways because they base their self worth on it. These people will never get enough affirmation in their lives and will always exist in a state of deprivation.
However, affirmation is not a terrible thing to give when it is appropriate for the following reasons:
1) We should give credit when credit is due.
2) Affirmation informs people on where they stand.
3) It takes generosity to freely give affirmation to others.
4) Affirmation strengthens trust within a team.
