Calling one person a superstar in public might make others feel demotivated
As a parent, through all the parent trainings, I have been trained to recognize and reward behaviours. Not to tell others who they are. Not sure why I can’t always apply this rule as a manager. It is one of the lessons I learned this week and will try to continue on. It’s more like this specific thing you did was on superstar level not you are a superstar. There is still much to learn and practice from the SBI (Situation-Behavior-Impact) model for me. You can read more on the SBI model here.
On a side note, behaving like that might help, if you are after building a more competitive model of management. I’ll see if I will have any reflections on that in the future.
On a separate note, this week I have also been part of an excellent round table about How To Navigate Your Career In Uncertain Economic Times, you can find the video below.
