Event Details

Virtual Lunch & Learn

The way we show and receive appreciation is important to our daily relationships, both personal relationships and our professional ones too. It doesn’t matter if we are a leader of a team or an individual contributor, appreciation is a powerful tool. However, it can be extremely tricky to navigate. How can you show someone you appreciate them? What if you have no budget to buy expensive thank-you gifts? You tried to show appreciation to someone once and they didn’t seem appreciative, should you even bother? When people give me praise, I feel uncomfortable.

Learn to understand how people feel appreciated, how to encourage innovation and creativity and how to become comfortable receiving feedback yourself!

Learning Objectives

  1. Creating an easy, affordable recognition program
  2. Appreciating your remote team
  3. What to do if praise makes you uncomfortable
  4. Appreciation on every level of your organization, board or team
