Recognition versus Appreciation
Earlier this month we came across a great talk by Mike Robbins. Mike explores the difference between recognition and appreciation. Whilst related concepts, recognition and appreciation are not exactly the same. But very importantly, human beings need both of them!
He says ‘recognition is positive feedback based on results or performance’ – it is about what you do.
Appreciation is more about ‘recognising people’s value; (its) about who we are‘.
We really recommend that you watch this video - it might be the most important 15 minutes you invest this month!
