When your team achieves a success, what do you do? Do you ignore these wins, automatically working toward the next goal without an acknowledgement of what has been attained? Do you just share a quick “good job” or “congratulations” and then head back into your office?
In our non-stop, 24-7 world, it’s all very easy to place immediate focus on your next task at hand and forget to stop and reflect on what’s been achieved. But if you ignore the wins of your team, you will miss a vital opportunity to inspire your team on to even greater successes.
If you bypass your team’s successes without recognition, what does that say about you as a leader? How do you think team perceive, think and feel about a leader when their efforts go unappreciated? These perceptions also reflect on the company as a whole, and that kind of downward spiral can mean loss of some of your best team members.
Here are some of the reasons why celebrating wins is important for you, your team and for building up your own company morale.
1) It will remind you of the goal you set and why you set it in the first place.
It’s easy to forget why a goal was important, but forgetting that removes all meaning from the task. When people remember why the work they do helps grow the business, they’re inspired to do more.
2) It will remind you that a good, focused goal-setting process works.
You set the goal, create strategies to achieve it and reach the outcomes you want. This not only delivers good results, but it inspires your team to set goals in all areas of their work as well.
3) It will motivate your team to continue delivering good work.
Employees who feel appreciated and know their efforts have been noticed become even more productive with the next round of projects.
4) It will remind the team that they work for a winning organisation.
People want to work for winners! So, one of the greatest morale-builders that a leader can offer employees is the knowledge that they work for a successful company, even if… no… Especially if there are other areas where the company might be struggling.
5) It will force you and your team to concentrate on the positive rather than the negative.
Even if your company has taken some hits, there are still wins you can celebrate. Give your team a boost by celebrating and reminding them that good things are still happening for the company.
As a business owner, it’s your job to keep your team motivated toward its own growth as well as toward the common goal of growing and building the company. Celebrating wins is a great way to do both and has the great side effect of boosting your own leadership image at the same time.
