How often to tell the people around you what you love about them?
Sometimes it feels easier to criticize. But this isn’t the path to creating an amazing team.
Even if it’s uncomfortable to tell people what they’re doing right, it’s important.
Like everything else, it’s a practice.
Practice acknowledging others, and own the acknowledgment given to you.
You’ll be amazed by how it changes your life.
