If you have heard me speak, you know that I am a huge believer in the power of WOW! I often use small WOW cards to jot down a brief note of appreciation to team members when they do something that needs to be noticed.

Survey after survey tells us that RECOGNITION for a job well done is one of the biggest motivators of employees. A very simple thing that we can do in 30 seconds.

I personally jot a small note and place the WOW card on the person’s keyboard so they see it when they arrive in the morning. I’ve also made an electronic version of my own design when I need to recognize a team member in another office.

I get the small recognition cards from Baudville – they are called Pocket Praise. Remember, the little things make the biggest difference.
