“Bah! Humbug!”

Ebenezer Scrooge

Don’t be a Scrooge this Christmas but instead, learn from the ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future.

As the season of goodwill approaches, does your team want to benefit from bonuses and presents or would a kind word and thoughtful gesture be more appreciated?

The Ghost of Productivity Past – applaud past accomplishments and review past successes over 2018.

The Ghost of Rewarding the Present – don’t miss your team’s day to day achievements. If something is worth congratulating, do it straight away.

The Ghost of Developing the Future – let your team know you’re committed to their long-term development and career as you go forward into 2019.

Remember, at the end of A Christmas Carol, Scrooge realises the error of his ways and goes forth full of cheer and goodwill with the words of Tiny Tim ringing in his ears…’God bless us everyone’.

Merry Christmas
