Transcript: – Hey there friend, it’s Stefanie Krievins, founder of the Pro Troublemaker Nation and congratulations, you’ve reached step 10 of 10. Let’s dig into this one, being a Pro Troublemaker you know how to celebrate what is going right. You know how to jump for joy at both the big wins and the small wins. We’re so good in our organizations, in our businesses of creating strategic plans for three years out, two years out, you might even have a really great vision of what 10 years success looks like. That’s awesome, but as human beings, we need to create momentum and maintain that momentum by knowing what success looks like for a day, a week, a month, a quarter, a year and we need to be able to do that with the people that are helping us accomplish those wins. So take the time to tell your people not just good job, that’s not enough anymore it’s just not, as a leader you need to be able to tell your people you did an amazing job or even if you just did a good job, good to great, right let’s celebrate both of those. What was the situation that you did that in? What were your specific behaviors that you demonstrated? And then what was the impact of those behaviors to create the win? That’s how you adequately praise people, give them the situation, the behavior and their impact, let them know what winning looks like, what productivity and an accomplished day looks like at the day level, the week level, the month level, the quarter level and then for the year. When you look into the research of what it takes to really create change in an organization, organizations and teams and departments need to be able to celebrate the short term wins as much and if not more than the long term wins, that’s six months, 12 months, 18 months. What is that significant progress that you’re making and how can you bring everybody together for a happy dance to ring that cow bell, right? Whatever makes sense in your culture do it with your people so that they can celebrate the good stuff ’cause we spend enough time on what’s not working and the problems and how the plan has gone off the charts or how the plan’s not going according to plan, let’s make sure we’re spending even more time celebrating what is going right. What are we learning? What growth are we having on the way to the big picture? All right my friend, as a Pro Troublemaker, let’s get off the internet, let’s celebrate the work with our colleagues and I’ll see you next time.
