Gratitude and Appreciation – Critical to a High Performing Culture

February 1, 2018

There isn’t much I can add to these two articles, except to say this; if your leaders – especially your frontline managers aren’t making the time to do these kinds of things, or don’t understand why they are so important, you have a serious leadership gap that will keep your teams mired in the world of “just good enough” instead of becoming high performance teams.

MIG & Associates believes that the dynamic between your frontline leaders / managers and their teams are a major – if not THE major – key to how effectively and efficiently those teams perform. Organizations that invest in coaching and leadership development only for their mid and senior level execs are failing to cultivate promotable leaders from within for their succession planning.

If you can see this gap in your organization and want expert help to do something about it, give us a call.

“When leaders forget about the human element, they’re holding back their companies and limiting the success of others,” (Yellen) said. “Focusing only on profit and forgetting that a company’s most important asset is its people will ultimately stifle a company’s growth.”

“We should treat our front line employees like the stars that they are. We should honor them for the work that they do because they are the ones that make the world turn. All of our strategies, visions, and corporate goals are only as good as the execution of those plans, and execution ultimately comes down to front line people doing things.”
