There are fundamentally two ways of achieving tough goals as a team. The first approach involves not trusting your team and giving them the impression that they are not doing enough. This approach can lead to demotivation and a lack of confidence in team members. Also, poor quality of outcome and burnout.
The second approach involves trusting your team and appreciating their steady progress and efforts in the face of ambiguity and challenges even when the result is not there. By showing genuine appreciation, you will not slow down your team’s progress but energize and refuel them to move forward, and even inspire them to take on bigger and tougher challenges. This is what differentiates a great culture from a bad one.
