Attention and Appreciation

I was watching kids interact with their parents at a play zone recently.

If their basic needs [not hurt or hungry] were met, I realised that two words summed up most of what they asked for: attention and appreciation.

Just as I was about to file that away as a reflection on kids, it got me thinking about the root causes of issues adults I know face at home or at the workplace.

It turns out that attention and appreciation are just as important in dealing with adults as they are with kids.

The best partners, friends, managers, and leaders make it a point to never forget that.
