Give Credit Where Credit is Due!

Giving credit to others for their accomplishments doesn't harm a manager. It elevates a manager as it shows that he or she is not so insecure that they need to steal other people's accomplishments. Click To Tweet

Whether they are peers or staff members, giving others their rightful credit for their good work does not diminish a manager.

Instead, the manager actually increases his credibility in the eyes of others.  The manager’s ability to openly acknowledge the contribution of others shows that he or she is not so insecure that they must represent the work of others as their own.

The manager also shows that he or she knows how to collaborate effectively.  Finally, the manager models ethical behavior by not taking recognition that properly belongs to someone else.

Savvy and ethical managers give credit where credit is due! Not only is it good leadership, but it also improves workplace motivation and employee loyalty.

No one likes to have someone steal their ideas and present them as his or her own. When your employees do well, give credit where credit is due! You'll increase your credibility with them. Click To Tweet
