Leadership consultant and co-author of the Thoughtful Leaders blog, Lisa Kohn says one of the smartest things you can do as a new supervisor is to catch people in the act of doing great things and to celebrate those moments.

She says: “One of the biggest fears people have about getting a new boss is that he or she will focus on finding all the things wrong with how work gets done, and then change everything … Look for what is working well and acknowledge successes. The problem areas will most certainly reveal themselves, but leaders shouldn’t make those problems their main focus.”

Lesson: Don’t focus only on what employees are doing wrong. Make it a priority to discover them doing good things for the team and company. Then praise them publicly.
