Mary Kay Ash, founder of Mary Kay Cosmetics, once said, “There are two things people want more than sex and money…recognition and praise.” Time and time again the one motivating factor at the top of most employee lists is appreciation for a job well done. It is more requested than the green stuff, money.
Why don’t more managers, owners, and employees give appreciation? Some people state they don’t know how to give appreciation. Others don’t know what to give appreciation for in the work environment. Yet others say they are too busy to give appreciation.
I think this is the biggest sin of managers, being too busy to motivate their employees and give appreciation for a good job well done. Remember what the old transmission commercials used to say, “You can pay me now or you can pay me later.” Well, that is what giving appreciation is about. You can invest in your employees now and “pay” them with sincere appreciation and achieve even better performance. Or you will “pay” later by seeing your team’s performance sink, corrective actions and coachings increase, and overall morale decrease.
I had the pleasure of having a student go through my class who wanted to learn how to make a video that would tell the inspirational story of her son and how he overcame his challenges to become an award-winning jazz pianist. The student in my class was Phyllis Kauflin. Her son is Justin Kauflin.
You may not have heard of him today, but you will shortly. His inspirational story is being told in the documentary, Keep on Keepin’ On, produced by musical genius Quincy Jones and coming out on Sept. 19th. The documentary tells the inspirational story of Justin’s journey to become an award-winning, world-class jazz pianist in spite of losing his sight at an early age. The documentary also tells the inspirational story of how Grammy-award winning jazz legend Clark Terry mentored Justin to become the pianist he is today. View the trailer below.
