Fill Their Bucket with Appreciation
Three of the most affirming words we could ever want to hear are these:
"I appreciate you!"
These words fill your bucket. They fill your mind with positive endorphins. They speak volumes to your soul, if you allow it.
Do you know the #1 reason why people leave their job?
They don’t feel appreciated.
(Discovered by Donald O. Clifton and Tom Rath
– How Full Is Your Bucket)
This is such an easy fix – simply and sincerely stating to an employee that they are appreciated, yet time and again managers fail to give the one thing that could make a difference.
And if we think employees are the only ones needing appreciation, think again. Spouses, children, parents and grandparents, people in your church, the waitress serving your morning coffee, the grocery store checker, the meat market man, the manicurist, and everyone else you meet in your daily living needs appreciation.
Mary Kay Ash so vividly reminds us …
This is an act I am trying to major in at this point in my life.
This is what is on my mind today.
