Leaders who acknowledge their team's excellence in skills and perspectives foster an environment where employees feel respected. Respect creates greater loyalty among employees and commitment to go the extra mile. This recognition also inspires a growth culture where team leads are empowered and motivated to further develop their leadership skills.
