You get what you reward! Know what you want to get and reward or recognize people in some way to get it.
All behavior is a function of its consequences.
When you get serious about performance, you have to get serious about recognition.
There's a big difference between getting people to come to work and getting them to do their best work.
Compensation is a right; recognition is a gift. Everyone who works gets paid - but not everyone gets recognition. That's why it means so much to people.
If you always do what you've always done, you'll always get what you've always got.
If good intentions alone led to success, we'd all be successful.
Take your work seriously and yourself lightly.
