Ideas for Motivating Staff
August 14, 2019
You must first have a lot of patience to learn to have patience.
-Stanislaw J. Lec

In the Exchange Essential article collection, “Motivate Your Staff,” one section includes ideas for inspiring staff that were contributed by a number of Exchange readers. Here is one of them contributed by Patti Buehler, The Growing Tree Child Care Center, Whitehall, Pennsylvania:

“In a central location for staff we post a piece of paper with the title of 'Kudos to You — Dos.' This is for any staff or director to write something positive about other staff to give recognition for anything seen, heard, or done that other staff noticed, liked, appreciated, etc. Sometimes the page is filled up quickly with comments from and for our 30 staff. We take it down and put up a new paper when that one is full. As director, I will then cut the comments apart and file each one into their personnel file. These are nice to have to refer to when doing evaluations. They can also be made into a little book to give to each staff member on Teacher Appreciation Week.”
