Why Great Leaders Reward Effort And Not Only Results

It’s natural for a leader to want to see results from their team. After all, the success of any organization depends on achieving results. But while results are certainly important, great leaders know that it’s also crucial to reward effort and not just results.

Here are a few reasons why:

Encouraging effort can lead to better results: By rewarding effort, you encourage your team to put in their best effort, which can ultimately lead to better results. When people feel like their hard work is valued and appreciated, they are more likely to go above and beyond to achieve success.

It promotes a positive team culture: Rewarding effort promotes a positive team culture where hard work is valued and appreciated. This can help to create a more collaborative and supportive environment, where team members are more likely to help each other out and work together effectively.

It motivates team members: Rewarding effort can help to motivate team members to continue putting in their best effort, even when the going gets tough. When people feel like their hard work is being recognized and rewarded, they are more likely to stay motivated and engaged.

It recognizes that results are not always within a team member’s control: Sometimes, despite a team member’s best efforts, results may not be achieved. By rewarding effort, you recognize that results are not always within a team member’s control and that their hard work is still valued and appreciated.

Lead From Within: Recognizing and rewarding effort shows that a leader values and appreciates their team and their hard work.
