What NOT to Celebrate 

Posted in A Note to Directors, Got Me Thinkin', Thoughts on Leadership on September 26, 2016 by RobALott

Celebrate the discovery of solutions, not of problems. 

If your team celebrates and congratulates its members who are finding problems, what do you think the other team members will go in search of?

What’s rewarded is repeated. What’s celebrated is searched and seized. 

Recognize and accept problems, sure. That’s just smart and completely necessary. But please, I beg, don’t celebrate your new found problems.
