The Best Approach to Giving Praise!

When it comes to motivation one of the key tools is positive feedback. We all want to hear about how good a job we have done, how well we are doing and that we are adding value.

In fact according to Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs, esteem is one of our basic needs and positive feedback helps to meet that need.

When it comes to providing feedback we need to make sure that we do it in the right way, because if we get it wrong, it can have the opposite effect to the one we are looking to achieve.

My preferred approach to giving feedback is to use the Praise Model.

Praise Model:

The more elements of the Praise Model we can get right the bigger the benefits we will achieve.

Praise is the fuel in the fire of continuous improvement, and it’s something we need to be giving often, but we need to be giving it in the right way.
