This week, we have some new awards for you to hand to your co-workers. Take some time this week and in the coming weeks to observe what your teammates do well and praise them for it. These awards are just examples, but please feel free to print them and give them to someone. I would encourage you to write a specific note on the back about what you’ve noticed.
Building a happy, powerful library is on the shoulders of each and every person who works there. Don’t forget your security guards, your IT helpers, and your janitors. Encourage someone every day, if you can.
For those of you who work mostly alone, take some time to reflect on what you do well and reward yourself somehow.
Do you have a way of lifting up your teammates? What are some practices that work well for you? Please share your stories in the comments.
