“The deepest principle of human nature is a craving to be appreciated.”
- William James

1. Appreciate yourself. Chances are high that if you find it difficult to acknowledge and appreciate yourself, you’ll probably have a challenges appreciating others.
2. Notice what your team is doing right.
3. Share specifics about what you value.
