Share Short-Term Win-Grow-Learn Stories for Workplace Transition 1519

Written by Stephen Hobbs

Workplace transition occurs with zip and zing when you share win-learn-grow stories - especially in the short-term. 

For those who care-to-share, then: 
Share the wins ...
Share the learning ... 
Share the growth ... 

That is, infuse the organization of work with stories that acknowledge, advance, and amplify what works as everyone challenges the systems where SYSTEMS means: 

Save Your Self Time, Effort, Money while making it Safer
Elements of this acronym are attributed to many anonymous quoters

This article is the sixth of 10 exploring Workplace Transition (Workplace Experience - #WPT, #WPX) ... where in workplace terms "transition (internal) is about the organization response to change (external) - knowing "change surrounds every challenge" (Dr. Linda Hines).

  • Celebrate through activities and at times that meet the requests of those involved 
  • Encourage continuous learning and continuous improvement 

Recognize Persons and Reward People

Recognize is to lead as reward is to manage
In the sense that:

  • when you recognize a person ... there is considerable commentary linked to the specifics of the person's performance - to inspire the person (tap into the inside and move outward = inside out) re: to lead the person from her/his organization of work 
  • when you reward people the commentary focuses on the criteria of the award and how its open to all - to motivate people by providing incentive for persons who determine it's important to pursue the reward/award, which in turn affects productivity (tap into the outside and move inward = outside in) re: to manage the systems for the people

Use Appreciative Inquiry 

Every day find/discover "things" going well ... and then, acknowledge, advance, and amplify those things through recognition, then reward.  
Because the default way of working has focused on problem inquiry. That is, looking for a solution to a problem. 

Practice an "Attitude for Gratitude" 

When you are willing to be grateful for what presents and learn how to do so over time - then, you set yourself up for kindness, caring, and experiencing a place of work where people do what they enjoy and enjoy what they do. That is, to co-create a place of work where and when people live well together = link to an online course: well-living workplace
