As an effective leader, you are likely always looking for fun and affordable ideas to show appreciation to your team.  Everyone enjoys recognition, and one of the most impactful ways to motivate your team is to reward behaviors that you want repeated.

As a basketball coach, our program had a “hard hat” award that was given each week to the player that had the most charges and deflections.  And just like in sports, whatever industry you work in, there will be important statistics that you can choose to measure and celebrate.

And no matter what field you work in, it is important to remember this quote by VCU Basketball Coach Shaka Smart:

“Appreciation is the currency of success.”

  1. Uplifting encouragement more times than not gets employees motivated and more like team players. You get more bees with sugar than with vinegar!
    When I have training classes I bring “Payday” candy bars. The first person who answers my question about the subject get a “Payday” suddenly everyone is paying attention! I ensure the first question is purposefully easy so attention builds in the beginning.

    • Hi Dave-

      Thanks for the comment. I like the idea of the “payday” early reward as motivation and recognition also!

  2. Really good tips that indeed don’t cost much and aim to honor the person themself and not necessarily tagets achieved. I personally like nr 31. One point to think about: why not pay attention to healthy foods instead of cake, cookies, candy. After all, as an employer you want your staff to take a healthy approach to life, dont you?

      First, I appreciate you taking the time to share a comment.
      And yes, you are right – it would likely be a nice part tof a “wellness” plan to replace some of the suggestions with healthier items… but there ARE times that just demand a good piece of cake!

  3. A personal experience with a variation of number 31. Just last week a colleague came and watched a high school rugby team that I coach. A cold wet day – yet he came and stayed for the entire game. Sure made me feel good!
