Look foropportunities tocelebrate.
Numerous opportunities exist to celebrate changes in performance and acknowledge individual and department achievement. Celebrations provide additional energy for the level of challenges that need to be addressed. Imagine that your team consists of long-distance runners: At various intervals, your goal will be to cheer them on, give them water, and offer “pep talks” to keep them focused on what they have achieved and what lies ahead of them. Celebrate often!
