Why is it easy for some managers to criticize others, yet so hard to offer praise?  It doesn’t seem that a simple “Thank you.  You did a great job on that project” is so difficult to say.  Perhaps Mom or Dad never gave enough recognition to a deed well done.  Not sure about why it’s not offered more often by more people, but the effects of consistent recognition are clear.  Research projects and surveys show consistent results that employees who are recognized for accomplishments and contributions (and deserve it) are not only happier, more productive, and more likely to stay with the company, they are healthier as well. Simply stated: recognition is fuel for self-esteem.  Check out this article for more.
