In Praise of Praise – Wally Bock

 Power of Praise

Wally Bock has written a great post on the power of praise in management.  It includes sections on:

  • What we know about praise
  • What we know about how to give good praise, and
  • Why don’t managers praise more?

If you find giving affirming feedback difficult – or just want to get better at it then have a look at his post.

  1. Thanks for the mention and the kind words. Praise really is a power tool, but many managers, especially in my generation, were taught that praise would lower productivity. Silly managers!! Praise boosts productivity.
