Become Appreciative — Eliminate Ungrateful!

Improve TQ Synergize Factor 7H...

"I show appreciation for the efforts of others, and praise them when they do the right thing."

People are automatically more productive when they feel that their efforts are acknowledged and sincerely appreciated. Praise is a small investment that pays huge dividends. Master this factor and your whole world will change. Let others know that you appreciate their efforts. Demonstrate an attitude of gratitude in private and in public. Give credit when something goes right, and don't forget to reward the victories -- large and small.

Remember, SYNERGIZE is the seventh color in the Time Prism Performance Spectrum because once your 24-hour day is filled up, the only way you can become more productive, increase the quality of your results, or reduce the time required for accomplishing your goals is through the participation and contribution of other people.

You CAN achieve your greatest dreams and aspirations. Simply improve your TQ Synergize Color.

TQ Factor 7H "Thin Line"...

Appreciative vs. Ungrateful is a choice — Your CHOICE!

There's a Thin Line between success and failure. Choose to take Factor 7H more often, and the following POSITIVE characteristics will automatically begin to accumulate and flow into to your performance—moving you TOWARDS the results you want and the success you desire.

Positives     Negatives

Choose to take this action infrequently, or not at all, and the opposing NEGATIVE traits will dominate your performance and sabotaging your success... moving you AWAY from achieving your goals and aspirations.

Think about it. How much more successful would you be if you were a little MORE Appreciative... and a little LESS Ungrateful?

TQ Factor 7H CONTRIBUTION to your performance...

A high commitment suggests you are grateful to others for the contributions they make to your projects and goals. You recognize how motivating it is to receive praise. You have seen the dramatic improvement in the spirits and results of those you praise. You take every opportunity to show appreciation for others, and reward them for their efforts. You take sincere interest in each person, and get excited about their progress. And when you show appreciation it's almost always reciprocated with an increase in the results produced by the other person.

TQ Factor 7H COST to your performance...

A lack of commitment suggests the only two things you share with others are straight facts and criticism -- and neither is all that motivating. There is no doubt that criticism can be a very effective motivator to the right person, at the right time -- but you can only beat up people for so long before they give up. Placing little value on the contributions of the other team members, will cost you team work. And you won't become a leader until you truly value the contributions others make toward your success -- and publicly reward them for their efforts.

TQ Factor 7H BENEFIT: You have more power...

Your demonstrations of appreciation encourage others to excell. You accumulate performance positives like "Appreciative, Demonstrative and Sincere" -- immediately moving you towards the results you expect.

FAIL to do TQ Factor 7H: Less Power...

Team members become discouraged, give up and leave when they're not appreciated. Negatives like "Ungrateful, Reserved and Critical" start to take their toll on your performance -- quickly moving you away from the success you want.
