“Peaks and valleys are connected. The errors you make in today’s good times create tomorrow’s bad times. And the wise things you do in today’s bad times create tomorrow’s good times."
- Spencer Johnson
Meaningfulness arises in episodic rather than sustainable ways.
1. Celebrate the peak moments.
a) Treat your team or team member to dinner after reaching a milestone.
b) Give a paid day off to rest as a reward.
c) Send a gift basket to their home.
d) Throw a party. Invite a dj and have an ice cream social.
2. Debrief the valley to peak process. Uncover what it took to reach the milestone.
