Congratulations & Celebrations

work team congratulations

One of my LinkedIn connections just posted a post starting with the phrase, “I wouldn’t normally post something like this on LinkedIn but…”

They then proceeded to praise their team for their huge efforts in recent times, including a celebratory photo of the team in better times. All the comments were super positive, as they should be. I did too but I had a nagging question – why the #$@% would they think it wasn’t OK?

We’ve probably all got different ideas of what LinkedIn is for. I know I do. It’s broadly a business / professional networking site. So, whatever you think networking is, is what LinkedIn is for, for you.If people don’t like it or don’t agree, they can disconnect. As can you.

I would like to do business with people who are expert, innovative, easy to work with, push me to develop, help me make money. Someone who shouts out and stands up for their team publicly via whatever channel is definitely someone I’d like to work with. If a superstar potential job applicant in that person’s industry saw that post, it could only add to their magnetism as an employer of choice. Not only was their post a good idea now, it’s always been, and always will be, a good idea. You have a go…

What can you do tomorrow to publicly, proportionately, and appropriately shout out for your team?

I’m trialling a self-directed course I’ve developed on personal effectiveness. One of the ten lessons within it is on influence, a critical element of which is building and maintaining rapport. You get all five of my books (in eBook format) when you sign up. If that sounds of interest, you can learn more at .

About Terry Williams - The Brain-Based Boss

I'm all about engaging people and helping you engage yours to influence behaviour to improve results - at work and at home. Maybe you're a manager, a salesperson, a leader, a parent, a presenter or an event organiser? You need to grab your people's attention, create some rapport, be memorable and influence behaviour change. How can we do that? I'm originally a trainer by trade, turned manager, turned comedian and partway back again. Author of 'THE GUIDE: How to kiss, get a job & other stuff you need to know', I write and speak about how to engage people, be they employees, family or yourself. How can we connect with people’s own internal motivations and help them use their own inner passions to drive towards productivity, success and happiness? And hopefully have a few laughs along the way... As a trainer facilitating learning and development in others, I find myself drawing on my own extensive business experience. I specialise in the delivery of high impact, customised training solutions for organisations that are serious about improving the performance and lives of their people.
