If you are the person in charge, the boss, the crew chief..
Poor professionalism at the top; management handles situations badly, which trickles down and infects the organization or the crew.
Cynicism and infighting; toxic behavior patterns Gossip cliques and backchannel complaining Issues with procrastination, slowing of work speed Resentment and irritation if gestures of recognition are off-base or too little, too late -
Create a culture of recognition -
Everyone wants to be respected and appreciated, and we often have different underlying desires that keep us going through a tough project.
When a team is slogging through tight deadlines or feels overworked or unseen, recognition can boost morale and strengthen their sense of team identity and support from management.
Make appreciative communication patterns a habit among the team, and avoid superficial assumptions of what really matters and motivates. -
