Welcome to the ‘Four Common Barriers to Recognition’ video lesson meant to analyze the major obstacles for leaders when providing recognition and how they can overcome them. This lesson is the final of four in the ‘Motivating Employees with Recognition’ video course meant to describe the importance of recognition for improving employee morale and work performance. Most of the roadblocks for leaders are mental—they don’t THINK they have enough time or budget to devote to recognizing employees. It turns out, these leaders just have a misconception about the expectations for providing recognition. By reframing how they think about recognition, they will feel inspired to do their part motivating employees with meaningful recognition.
