1.I expect perfection so when it’s achieved, there is no need to reward it since that is what was expected in the first place.
2.I didn’t have time.
3.I could have done even better myself so why would someone expect to receive praise if it’s not as good as I could have done on my own.
4.I think punishment is more effective than reward.
5.I don’t like showing my emotions.
6.I didn’t notice anything worth praising because I don’t spend much time with them.
If any of these are your reasons for not giving praise, YOU ARE WRONG!
Most people want and need praise and if you are a manager and aren’t giving praise because of any of the above reasons, you need to reconsider how you are managing!
Have a great day!
