When cheering “go, team, go!” during the project process turns into “me, myself, and I” at the awards podium, teams can understandably feel resentful and bitter.
Be their coach and biggest fan!
Recognize their work the next time everyone gets together- such as at the start of a meeting or workday.
Thank them publicly- have a team lunch, send a mass email, or put their names on the sign next to your award on display.
If there is a podium, make sure you mention your team’s part in your success.
Giving glory and credit to your team isn’t about taking away from your individual success; it’s about unity...AKA strong and loyal teams.
You’ve got this – together!
