How to Train Your Managers to Deliver High-Impact Employee Praise

Experts tell us that we should deliver praise to our employees as often as possible. Recognition is one of the most powerful tools available to improve productivity, moral and loyalty. But giving praise isn’t as simple as it seems — and delivering it the wrong way at the wrong time can actually serve to de-motivate workers.

Fact is, most managers have never been trained how to deliver effective employee praise. As a result, many fail to give praise nearly as much as they should and others assume it’s a simple matter of saying, “nice job” from time to time.

That’s why you’ll find this free webinar so valuable. It’s not just about giving employee praise, it’s about teaching the managers in your organization “how to” deliver effective employee praise.

We invite you to join Steve Meyer, CEO of the Rapid Learning Institute as he discusses:

  • Why the way many managers train their people in management and leadership skills — like how to praise — is so deeply flawed.
  • Why knowledge retention after training is a fraction of what we’d want it to be
  • Examples of situations where “praise” isn’t about praising at all
  • An especially dangerous misuse of praise that could erode your credibility as a manager
  • The secret to ensuring that praise delivers the motivational message you intend it to
  • How to be sure your “praise training” message sticks
