Affirmation Team Exercise

I heard of a great exercise you can do with your team at work. Stand in a circle and one at a time turn to the person on your right and tell them what you appreciate about the job they do. Go around the circle until everyone has had a turn. You will be amazed at how long that small gesture of appreciation lasts. We don’t tell people enough how much we appreciate them. Let’s start today.

And as your motivational speaker, please know how much I appreciate you for taking the time to read this

  1. Oh wow. We must be on the same page this week with this "appreciation" thing. Check out my post on this VERY subject! You Thought It – Did You Say It? 

  2. I thought you were setting us up for a punch line. 

  3. I appreciate your ability to make me laugh! You reminded me of how I used to make it a point to tell my daughters daily why I appreciated them. Great habit I need to revisit.

  4. Appreciation and positive feedback are priceless tools – that are 100% free! 

    Kelly, I so appreciate you, and the way you have the gift to make me think and to make me laugh – sometimes within the same sentence!   

  5. This is so true, Kelly!  I've experienced the negative effects of being on a team that never got any pat on the backs for our hard work and it was an awful environment.  A few of us started this practice of appreciating each other since our boss wasn't ever going to and it made all the difference!  Like Tami said, it's free!
