One of the things which everyone intimately seeks in life as well as at work is to be admired by others
It is an innate need which you can leverage on as a leader. Due to our social nature, our happiness comes as a result of being personally recognized more than as a consequence of getting something which we miss. With differences from individual to individual given by the context and the circumstances, people are generally encouraged to exceed in the next task every time they are given compliments for an effort made.
