The Domino Effect of Affirmation

When I receive affirmation I learn a lot about the team. I feel as though I am known and valued because someone cared enough to notice that I did a good job. I feel appreciated because my work helped that person and they recognized it. That shows that the team needs me and I feel accepted. The feeling of acceptance creates a perception of safety. Safety is the soil where seeds of trust and relationship flourish. Affirmation can be the first domino in a line that moves toward a trusting team dynamic.

Even if you are in a state of deprivation from affirmation you can do for someone else what no one is doing for you. Let’s make it a point to affirm someone on our team today to start their dominos falling toward acceptance, safety, and trust.
