When you show appreciation to others you improve loyalty and trust. People have a basic need to feel appreciated. People need to know you care. If you're the leader, you can raise morale and create loyalty, job satisfaction, and motivation when you express appreciation to your staff for their efforts. You can invest in your employees now and "pay" them with sincere appreciation and achieve even better performance. Or you can "pay" later by seeing your team's performance sink and overall morale decrease. Sincere appreciation will motivate your team to a higher level and achieve more.
