“On the 11th day of Christmas a Manager said to me…
CAN’T I JUST BRIBE THEM?“
🌟(Sing along to the 12 days of Christmas song!)🌟
(10) Why set expectations?
(9) How do I manage upwards?
(8) Why aren’t they listening?
(7) I don’t have time to do this!
(6) Another 4-box model?
(5) DO I REALLY HAVE TO DO THESE 1:1’s?
(4) What can I delegate?
(3) How do I give feedback?
(2) Who are my team?
(1) I don’t know what’s expected of me!
This was a genuine question I had from one exasperated manager once. “NO you can’t!”
What you can do however is:
⛄️ Create a system of rewards and incentives.
⛄️ Have a good balance for individuals and/or team reward and recognition opportunities
⛄️ Consider that not everyone will want public recognition, a simple 1:1 acknowledgement will work too
⛄️ BUT REMEMBER to always include the employees when first setting up anything like this to ensure the reward is actually wanted! – (I once won 12 cuddly turtles during an incentive programme in a contact centre! 12 of them! )
