Love that what gets recognized gets repeated...
We can also coach our students to "not be 10%-ers." Coaching Kids to Be Grateful: https://www.studereducation.com/coaching-kids-to-be-grateful/
Whenever I meet a family member of a colleague or employee, I love telling them how much that person makes a difference at work.

Coaches depend on Annie and she always comes through with GREAT support!
Make the impact people have visible to them.
I wasn't raised on thank you notes. I never realized the value of specific recognition until I joined this team. When they come in the mail, I also get to share the impact I have with the people I love (who don't often understand my work).
Gratitude is a game changer, Waukesha County Technical College uses a virtual wall of thanks to hardwire gratitude, reward & recognition. Here is Jennifer and Jonathan explaining how the wall of gratitude works: https://www.studereducation.com/thank-you-is-powerful/
Hurray, to our WCTC team members on this call!
What a poignant story JoAnn-little moments....
We are proud of this accomplishment at WCTC. It was a way to thank people in the virtual world. If interested in how we created the Wall of Thanks please contact me.
The accelerate your performance podcast released an episode on making recognition a habit as well, listen here or on your favorite podcast app #51: https://www.studereducation.com/make-recognition-a-habit/
That idea is GOLD!
I love how excited you get (and live) reward and recognition, JoAnn. A great example for me. Thank you.
I love that!
There are a variety of ways to creatively recognize employees without blowing your budget. Here are a few ideas you can explore: https://9principles.com/learning/ideas-for-recognizing-your-employees/
My daughter has the entire JoAnn collection :)
My kids always played with the ducks when they'd visit the office too!
I found gratitude cards that I have used this year - what a response from those who have received them!
I send a text
I include stickers and inspirational pop-ups & messages
Every month I ask our principals (42 of them) to name a staff member that has been working very hard during COVID/off-site. I then send the staff member a personal note on district stationary.
Casey K. sends stickers with her thank you notes! Super cute.
I have personalized note pad “From the desk of:…” and leave notes on people’s desks.
To celebrate American Education week the admin team visited each teacher and staff member in their classroom or office and gave each person a gift card, a rock that says ‘you are awesome’ and a poem. I took pictures of each and posted to our website and our Heroes
I have so many note cards... It's a common gift item to give me so that I always have plenty to send.
My ‘go to’ is personal cards, texts, or emails with the specific and timely appreciations.
I'm a gift giver. I like to send quotes and poems, too.
We give teacher hawk tickets! Just like we give our students!
I normally do a face to face
Everyday I write one thank you card to mail.
Finding fun clip art to stick in an email that says thanks or you rock
I provide all new staff a version of the poem my dad gave me on my first day of teaching
Start every virtual meeting with a recognition moment. To let people share gratitude
Social media shout outs are fun too!
I spoke with a principal who's sending 5 random employees a "sunshine kit" of snacks each week as they work virtually.
We give Eagle Excellence Awards at each monthly board meeting. People to show excellence in the work place are honored with a personal story about what they do that is excellent.
I like the idea of different stationary and COVID cards
Here here on social media shout outs. It's public and allows others to chime in.
Yes - GO PACKERS!
If something isn't on my calendar, I don't get it done.
Who should do the recognizing? In a Gallup workplace survey, employees were asked to recall who gave them their most meaningful and memorable recognition. The data revealed the most memorable recognition comes most often from an employee’s manager (28%), followed by a high-level leader or CEO (24%), the manager’s manager (12%), a customer (10%) and peers (9%). 17% cited “other” as the source of their most memorable recognition. These data help us understand that employees are diverse and it’s important to take more than one approach to reward and recognition.

Awesome session! I’m inspired to spread more gratitude in our school district! Bright spot in my day! Thank you so much!
