The wonders of praise
In all the holiday and end of year celebrations, it was probably easy to miss this post from HBR on the best management charts in 2015. They are terrific and it has something for everyone.

Here is the chart again below in case you missed it.
The one in the header of this post simply shows how effective praise is tied directly to employees’ stated satisfaction with their jobs. Why don’t they teach this in business school?
