Credit for work done rarely flows where it should

It’s a sad reality that many managers face but credit for work done rarely flows to where it should.

  • People forget who originated the idea.
  • Egos get in the way.
  • Communication often breaks down.
  • Ideas merge and ownership of initiatives can be blurred.
  • People find it hard to say thank-you.

Try to be the manager that gives thanks, praise, feedback and credit to those who do the work.

It will make you stand out. It will set you apart as a manager who cares. It will empower your team to do more. It will improve almost everything about your work place. People will want to work with you. It’s also a generally nice thing to do. Go forth and give credit.
