A….B….C….Always Be Celebrating
Always Be Celebrating!
I’m taking you back to the basics in today’s post🤣
Seriously though, I do want to discuss with you today why you need to be recognizing and celebrating success NOW! More than ever it is important that you make this a part of your culture.
Many times I think it’s easy for aesthetic business leaders to be so worn out that they don’t consider team recognition. And some may even believe that team wins are part of the paycheck and don’t need to be celebrated. However, I’m arguing it should be. Take a look at these stats:
•63% of employees who are recognized are very unlikely to look for another job.*
•40% of employed Americans would put energy into their work if they were recognized more often.*
What do these stats mean for you? That celebrating the wins, big or small, of your team is necessary. But please, don’t make this boring. Celebrating is meant to be FUN! Make recognition an enjoyable practice for you as well as your team. Here are a few ideas for ingraining success celebration into your culture, let’s get creative!
Spin the wheel- create a wheel with prizes from a free Starbucks to dinner for two at a local restaurant. Often, your team members won’t just want monetary gifts. Rather, they’ll appreciate the fun and anticipation of games & prizes.
All aboard- make it easy for the whole team to celebrate wins together with a Slack channel! Create a channel dedicated to sharing wins where everyone can pitch in and recognize the success. Involving everyone in communication like this helps strengthen the team culture and boosts morale.
Create a target- choose specific organizational goals for your team to hit. While you can’t celebrate every win with a prize or gift, you should always do so when you reach the milestones you’ve set for your business. Share your business goals with the team, and let them help you choose how to celebrate!
Celebrating success is not only fun but vital if you want to create a thriving practice. Are you looking for more team building ideas? Comment below!
