Expressing Authentic Appreciation
This is a critical element of NASA’s 4-Dimensional Leadership & High Performance Program. The framework for appreciation is captured by the acronym HAPPS:
Providing regular appreciation until it becomes automatic
Cultivating grateful reflection as a foundation for authenticity
Expressing appreciation as soon as possible after the action occurs
Keeping the appreciation proportionate to the effort and benefit created
Linked to a specific observable behaviour, not vague or general i.e. “Great design work!” not “Good Job!”
