#2. Letting accomplishments go unrecognized
It’s easy to underestimate the power of a pat on the back, especially with top performers who are
intrinsically motivated. Everyone likes kudos, none more so than those who work hard and give their all.
Rewarding individual accomplishments shows that you’re paying attention. Managers need to
communicate with their people to find out what makes them feel good and then to reward them for a job
well done. With top performers, this will happen often if you’re doing it right.
