Leaders often fall into two categories:
- See the initial wins, are happy with them, and move on
- See the initial changes as just the start of a long-term process of cementing change into the org. culture
The level of enthusiasm you show for early wins will immediately set the tone for others who are on the fence about the change and waiting for the early indicators of whether they should take this initiative seriously.
Dale Carnegie said:
Praise the slightest improvement and praise every improvement. Be hearty in your approbation and lavish in your praise.
Check out past coaching guide How to Be Grateful Without Sounding Insincere for the exact, 3-step process to follow.
If you show genuine enthusiasm for early wins, you vastly improve your odds that these aren’t the only wins you’ll see.
