When it comes to supporting cultures of great work, managers matter. Managers who regularly share appreciation and recognize individual and team accomplishments create environments where great work happens again and again.

While some managers are natural appreciators, others find it takes some work. Then of course, you have negative objectors who may not even understand (or believe) the impact recognition can have. Join the O.C. Tanner Institute’s Jeff Birk as he lists out the top 10 excuses managers give of why they don't recognize their people. Plus, actionable strategies to overcome each one.

As a manager of Speaking and Training, Jeff’s trained thousands of managers around the world. Drawing from best practices, leading research, and relevant examples, he’ll share how you can help your managers:
  •  Choose appropriate rewards relevant to the achievement
  •  Prioritize recognition amidst a busy schedule
  •  Deal with jealousy or suspicion
  •  Manage their recognition budget fairly
