As a leader, sometimes it is said that recognizing a person for what he or she has accomplished is inappropriate because what he or she did was perfectly normal or expected. As a result, they may not congratulate them or hesitate to congratulate and recognize their efforts. Perhaps a leader does not dare to express his/her gratitude because it is not a behavior he/she is used to. Maybe he/shehas even missed it in his/her life.
It also happens that a leader knows that giving recognition is essential. And yet he hesitates to give it because he has no idea of the best way and the best conditions to give recognition. Recognition can be positive in order to strengthen the person in what he or she does well, or critical in order to reframe or develop the person.
