I was chatting with a client yesterday and they mentioned that they had just left their role of 12 years. This piqued my curiosity as to what led them to leave their role.
The client responded, “I felt that my efforts over the past 3 years weren’t being recognized or appreciated.”
My client wasn’t alone in their feelings.
According to Glassdoor’s Employee Appreciation Survey, “53% of people said feeling more appreciation from their boss would help them stay longer at their company — even though 68% said their boss already shows them enough appreciation.”
What’s the lesson from this? You can never show too much appreciation.
Leading with an attitude of appreciation greatly influences their longevity at your organization and therefore their impact.
If you are seeking practical ways to implement appreciation into your leadership style, we can support you.
