Steve,

I'm amazed when the "manager as a source of light" is so often missed and, sometimes, intentionally ignored by managers. In practicing this "positive reinforcement" philosophy I've seen underperformers rise to the occasion and, in some instances, outperform their more senior peers.

I've also seen the opposite where management encourages through negative reinforcement. The end result is short-term gains, but long-term withdrawl by the contributors and managers from the organization.

It's time we refocus our efforts as managers on long-term gains for our organizations and their greatest assets, our peers and coworkers, by being the light.

Thank you for your post.

Thanks,
