Here’s a tip for leading your team through change: Give them an ‘A’ for effort. Do it early and often. Reward the small, incremental victories, and the effort that it took to achieve them.
Change isn’t easy. In fact it’s downright painful. Catch your team making a positive effort, and reward those behaviors.
Real change takes time, commitment and effort on their part. A little recognition along the way will speed and ease the process.
