Appreciation: Do it yourself!

We need recognition to be productive and creative, to remain loyal to our coworkers, customers and stakeholders, and to feel secure – as freelancers, employees and managers.

But what happens when appreciation is rarely given – or not at all –, or when you find it difficult to express or accept appreciation? Or if a company’s recognition culture is limited to one of those dystopian tools that automatically dole out thumbs up messages?

In this workshop, I touch on such tricky topics as pride, trust and the recently re-surfaces (but age-old) “impostor syndrome.” And I’ll explain and demonstrate how we can put into practice what we already know deep inside: That in the end only we ourselves can pat ourselves on the back.
