A. APPRECIATION – ‘Fail to Appreciate People and You Fail to Lead’

It is highly appropriate that we begin our ‘A to Z’ with the first letter of the alphabet ‘A’, being for ‘Appreciation’.


‘Appreciation’ – Is a critically important ‘First Principle of Transformational Leadership & Management’.

Appreciation is one of the most fundamental foundation stones of leading others.

If you ‘Fail to Appreciate People, you Fail to Lead’ it really is as simple as that.

Why is this?

  • Exemplar Scientific Research – Decades of exemplar Scientific Research proves this to be a Primary Leadership Principle.
  • Psychologically Proven –  Instinctively, we humans need to feel ‘safe’; have a ‘sense of belonging’; be ‘recognised’ and be ‘appreciated by others’.
  • Empirical Results Motivator – Having coached hundreds of people over many decades; Appreciation is one of the most powerful Motivators we have as Leaders.
  • Empirical Results – Demotivator – The absence of appreciation & recognition by Leaders & Others, is very high on the list of demotivators for the vast majority of People.
  • Stress Buster –  People who feel appreciated , recognised, liked and loved by others are less likely to suffer from stress and anxiety.
  • Fun & Happiness –  Most people want to enjoy life, have fun and be happy. Appreciation by others is a very important part of Personal & Group happiness.
  • High Performing Teams – The highest performing teams feel safe; have a strong sense of belonging; and consistently and regularly provide high volumes of appreciation to each other.

Please think about and consider the above very carefully.

How do you feel if you are appreciated and recognised by others?

How do you feel when you are NOT appreciated and recognised by others?

How much do you truly and sincerely appreciate others?

How often do you appreciate others on a regular basis?

It Delivers Successful Results Every time – Delivering high performing individuals; in high performing teams; in high performing organisations.

Our Programme will enable you to

  • Consider – The techniques & methodologies which are available to You and Your team.
  • Develop – Develop or enhance your existing Leadership & Management Skills Knowledge and Experience.
  • Apply – You will be encouraged to apply the right skills, with the right people, in the right situation at the right time. Starting to see immediate benefits.
  • Reflect – On your Continuing Professional Development (CPD). What happened when you used this skills? How might you do better next time?


If you already know and use this First Principle , well done.

Assuming you truly and sincerely appreciate others on a regular basis, then this should reassure you that you are already using a vital Leadership Skill.

If you are not convinced about the above, then we suggest that you choose to start to develop this appreciative feedback skill yourself.

Genuinely and sincerely show your appreciation for something anybody has done for you.

See how positively they respond.

Watch their body language.

The more you practice and use this skill the more it will become comfortable for you.


Consider just two situations when you may get the opportunity to provide appreciative feedback to others in your team.

  • Individual(s)
  • Team(s)

Individual(s) – There are likely to be numerous situations when you have the opportunity to provide appreciative feedback to an Individual. These could range from simply thanking one of your team for making a coffee. To really appreciating a person for delivering a major piece of work.  Generally, this is best given privately ‘one to one’. Not involving others.

Team(s) – Situations can arise when you have the opportunity to provide appreciative feedback to your team. These could range from taking a few minutes to say thank you to your team towards the end of a particularly tough day; to thanking a project team for delivering a major project. By definition, this will be given to a group of individuals and is best given when the whole team are together. Avoid missing out 1 or 2 people. If you have got to miss out 1 or 2 individuals ensure you thank them personally later. Let the rest of the team know your intention.


Reflection is a critical part of learning and retention.

Reflect on applying this appreciative feedback skill.

What have I learned from applying the basics from this Appreciation Module (Extract)?

What went well?

What would I do differently?

How could I improve next time?

The above is a ‘taster’. 

In this our first Module ‘Appreciation’, we WILL provide further more advanced applications of the use of ‘Appreciation’ to lead and influence others.

Importantly, we enable you to develop this skill set into different situations.

How can I be a Better Leader tomorrow, than I am today?
