During our Ultimate Immersion Experience in Spain, we participated in adventures, challenges, and experiences that pushed us out of our comfort zone and ultimately grew us as a team and individually in our leadership.
One of the most memorable and impactful parts of the experience were our dinners. At the end of each day, we would all gather for dinner and reflect on the events of the day. We discussed our challenges, memorable experiences, and lessons learned, all while dining on some delicious Spanish cuisine.
During our dinner time, we were very intentional about sharing and showing our appreciation and recognition of each other for many of the leadership qualities and traits they presented throughout the day. Things like bravery, vulnerability, adventure, encouragement, positivity, and flexibility.
As we circled around the dinner table, each person took a few minutes to go around the table and sincerely appreciate and recognize each of the team members present. It was touching and inspiring to see how the recognition was given, as well how it was received. Our group shared many smiles, laughs, tears and moments of joy and happiness as these moments and words were shared. These dinners became one of the most looked forward to and impactful parts of the Ultimate Immersion Experience.
Lesson learned here: appreciation and recognition matter. It must be part of your life, business, and leadership.
Here are several things to consider when it comes to leading others with appreciation:
Remember, a little appreciation goes a long way.
Challenging and encouraging you to incorporate more appreciation into your life, leadership and business.
Remember 3 things:
I love you.
I believe in you.
You’ve got this.
Now, go get it!
