3. Host a 12-week ceremony

The 12-week ceremony is a way for you to publicly acknowledge people who have really gone and done some great work in the last 12 week period. By acknowledging them publicly by giving them a ribbon or some sort of token, your acknowledgment communicates to the rest of the team that you’re noticing and honoring great work.

12 weeks to inspiration

Too often leaders wait for an annual event to give somebody
an award. Every 12 weeks you can acknowledge those 90 days of effort, it gives your team members the positive reinforcement, recognition, and joy of a celebration. This motivates the team to continue with vigor over the following 12 weeks.

Save the time for celebration

The 12-week ceremony is together time and only for celebration. Choose a time and bring your team together. Keep it simple, it can be a printed certificate or an award you put around their neck. If you have the budget, it can be a gift. Don’t make it too big or too long a ceremony. You will find that people will start hanging their awards in their cubicles or near their lockers. If your team is scattered, you can do this virtually. You can send them the award or package with clear instructions NOT TO BE OPEN UNTIL OUR SCHEDULE MEETING. Once the group is present virtually, have the team member open the package. It makes a difference for all.

Keep track Your ‘favorites’ may show up. Use caution, diversity and awareness.

Caution: Keep track who gets awards and who doesn’t. You want to make sure you acknowledge everyone in a year. If someone doesn’t ever get an award, why are they on your team?
