Of all the complaints I’ve heard about leaders, I’ve never heard anyone complain…
“I wish my boss would stop encouraging me. I get too much encouragement.”
It’s easy to miss the mark when you call people to face new challenges.
Good intentions backfire. Unexpected resistance knocks you for a loop. Perhaps you misread your team’s readiness to take on new challenges.
Encouragement – while facing challenges – never misses the mark.
“Only three in 10 U.S. employees strongly agree that in the last seven days they have received recognition or praise for doing good work.” Gallup
Occasionally I send a short text or email to leaders I know. It might simply read, “I was just thinking of you. I know you’re facing big challenges. You matter.”
The reply often reads, “Thanks, I really needed that today.”
It’s always the right time to say a good word to someone who’s facing challenges.

When I think of you, I think about …

I’m thankful for you.
Thank you for rising to this challenge.
