I love parades, especially in the small town I live in. It is fun and you can get lots of free candy at my towns parades. All you have to do is wave like crazy and yell. The more excited you are the more candy you get from each of the floats. It is like Halloween in July! It is especially fun to observe people’s behavior at parades. The first few floats were greeted with great anticipation.
I recently conducted a somewhat informal poll on Linkedin among HR and leadership professionals. I posed the question “What would you consider the number one or two things managers can do to help make their employees feel valued?” I received over 120 responses to this question. I have grouped the top ten answers below.
