HOW FULL IS YOUR BUCKET?

In fact, according to Rath, the No.
1 reason people leave their jobs is
because they do not feel appreciated.
Every drop in our bucket encourages
us and propels us to be better and to
improve our service to others. In a
positive environment, many research
studies reveal that production in-
creases and people feel less stressed.
No one likes working in a negative
environment and going home with
backache, indigestion, and fatigue.
Rath and Clifton have surveyed more
than four million employees world-
wide, including more than 10,000
business units in more than 30 in-
dustries. The results when individu-

These are admirable traits that
any employer would like to see.
Having these traits means better
profits that the entire team can re-

How do we contribute to a healthy
and positive office environment?
• Ask your team members how they like to be recognized. We are
individuals with different needs. Some people may prefer to remain
in the background and one-on-one personal acknowledgement,
while others like certificates such as Employee of the Month. Most
people, however, react well to public praise. In other words, when we
compliment and appreciate someone in the presence of others, it is
• It’s the little things that matter, especially over time, such as a
simple note next to someone’s work area or coffee mug expressing
appreciation. If it’s related to a specific event, the appreciation is even
more powerful: “Thank you, Nancy, for helping get your elderly patient
safely to her car. You are a great asset to our practice.”
• Give unexpectedly. A recent poll by Rath indicated that the vast
majority of people prefer unexpected gifts. Although expected gifts fill
our bucket, receiving unexpected gifts fills our buckets a little more.
Remember an event where that happened to you and you can appreciate the benefits. I remember someone cutting out an article about
my daughter and framing it for me. The frame was inexpensive, but
the gesture from that person was priceless.
• Give others your undivided attention. Practice being fully present
without distraction, eye-to-eye and knee-to-knee. This recognizes
and appreciates others at a profound level. Put down the smart-phone! How many of you have been annoyed by people who obsessively text while you’re speaking to them? You’re missing out if you’re
distracted with your devices. USA Today reported that people say
we’ve become ruder with the use of our devices today. As a student
of communication science, I couldn’t agree more.
