Did you get praise last week?

Getting praise has a clear connection with performance. The organization Gallup found something interesting regarding one question in a big analysis of 28 studies with 105 680 answers: “In the last seven days, I have received recognition or praise for doing good work”. If the coworker's answer was yes, they had better profitability, productivity and their customers were more satisfied. Why just seven days? Because the effect wares off fast. As with any training. So keep up the good praise.
