Awesome advice, as usual, Mark. I recently shared this blog post with my network on LinkedIn:

Take the Initiative to Give Positive Feedback

  • “When is the last time you took the time and trouble to give some delayed, positive feedback to someone in your organization? …Even small compliments are capable of sustaining large relationships.”
  • “Obviously, such feedback must be sincere and not just an idle compliment. But giving positive feedback can become a self-fulfilling prophecy.”
  • “Research has shown, for instance, that students randomly selected for positive feedback from their teachers are much more likely to excel in their studies.”
  • “In addition, positive feedback delivered the right way can dramatically boost your own spirits in addition to giving a lift to the person you’re complimenting.”

Words for the wise!
