Positive Quote: “Reprove privately, praise publicly.” – Arnold Glasow
One of the most difficult parts of being a leader is delivering the ‘hard’ message while being empathetic. However, delivering this message not only should be done to help the team, the company and the person. It should also be done in private and you should have a well thought out plan for what message you want to deliver to ensure consistency.
I know of several people who held back on delivering that message and in the end it made things worse all around.
As for the praise, this should be often, whenever you see someone doing something that is above and beyond, ahead of schedule, taking extra effort…. It brings a smile to both the giver and the receiver and should be shared.
