Celebrate Achievement on Your Team [Podcast]

Last month, I taught about celebrating achievement on CLo.TV and today I’m digging deeper into celebrating your team and how each personality style wants to be recognized for their achievements.

I’ve been teaching and coaching entrepreneurs for over a decade and we struggle to celebrate. In our entrepreneurial minds, we think, “people should celebrate when I give them a paycheck.” But we’re emotion beings. We want other people to know we did something right. Understanding how to celebrate with your team members in their personality style will not only help them to feel appreciated but motivate them to keep succeeding.

High D’s or I’s want to celebrate in a big way. They want everyone to know about it. They want everyone to hear about it. High S or C people are all about one-on-one affirmation. They want to know, “Did I do a good job?” “Did I take care of people well?”

As a leader or an entrepreneur, you have to understand that your people are starved for celebration. They want to know that they’re doing a good job. They need to know that they’ve actually accomplished something. If you’re not getting out there and talking about them or bragging about them to others, they stuff it down inside and think, “Well, I guess that didn’t mean too much.”

If you want to see a more productive team, get out there and start celebrating them! Celebrate what they’ve accomplished and I can promise you, you’ll start seeing people work harder around your place.

Milestones Matter In Business [Video]

January 16, 2014 | By | 18 Comments">18 Comments

Earlier this week, Michael Hyatt joined me on the podcast to talk about goal setting and I wanted to continue on that theme and lay out the importance of setting milestones in your business.

Many times, we only think of milestones as big or important events from the past. Milestones should also be pre-meditated events that occur on our way to hitting goals, finishing projects and building our businesses. They provide a frame of reference for how far we’ve come and what’s ahead.


As entrepreneurs, we have no problem finding what’s wrong in our business. It’s a lot harder to recognize what’s great and take time to recognize the people who are doing great things! Developing milestones for your business allows you to celebrate with your team. You can cast a vision and track the progress by rewarding team members for what’s accomplished along the way.

Next time you start a project, decide what the milestones will be and how you will celebrate each one. If you’re not celebrating achievements with your team, they don’t know what they’ve accomplished and are probably pretty unmotivated. Milestones will give them goals to hit and when they do, you celebrate!

Question: What’s your next big milestone and how are you going to celebrate it?
