Celebrate Success

Celebrate Success by Head4Performance

Why celebrate business successYou don’t need an excuse BUT it’s the time of year for many businesses with the approaching holiday season and imminent arrival of 2017 to hang up the bunting and celebrate their successes. Successful businesses, take time to celebrate achievements and show that you do not take hard work for granted.  Building a great team is challenging and it is important to take time and effort to celebrate success. When last did you raise a glass to the success of your team achievements? Celebrating success injects energy into your business, making it worthwhile for your team to continue to contribute to its long-term success. It is great for increasing engagement, which, in turn, increases productivity. Start planning now!

What is success?

It can be as simple as an individual’s performance over a week or the overall success of the business over the past 12 months. Success is whenever a goal is achieved.  Everything that gets done and contributes to the purpose of the team is a success.

Call it out

Recognising personal efforts that contributes to the team’s common goals will motivate and encourage If you have a team member who has achieved something important, a celebration can be as simple as treating them to a lunch and discussing their success in detail.

Share success stories

The stories about how goals have been achieved are useful. Sharing stories allows the team to get to know each other. They provide insight and practical tips others can use. They also help and inspire others to excel.

Recognise the success of others

Recognising success is very powerful as it reinforces the businesses goals and values. Showing respect for achievement will boost esteem, mutual respect forges stronger relationships and encourages employee engagement

Do it now

The rule of thumb for recognition is that the earlier the better. If the team do something great, be the first to notice and congratulate them. A more formal congratulation or a bonus can come later but don’t wait to say thanks for hard work.

Make it public

Public recognition is much more powerful than a private one. A celebration only feels like a real one with a crowd and some level of noise (involving lots of cheering and clapping).


Rewards can in all shapes and sizes, and can involve cash or non-financial rewards. A personal comment or handwritten thank-you note is great but sometimes a little more is needed.



Trophies can be used to celebrate the success of anything and everything: landing a new contract, finishing a piece of amazing work, or reaching a milestone—any success can be celebrated This ensures that almost everyone gets a chance to display a trophy on their desk.


Newsletters keep everyone in the loop. They’re great for sharing individual, team and project successes. Set aside a success page each month and celebrate the success of one individual and one team, as well as anyone else who deserves a mention.

Social Events

Get out of the office to celebrate particularly special successes. A social event gives people something to look forward to and makes a big difference to energy levels and morale. They are great to enable teams to relax together, strengthening team relationships and spurring them on to achieve even more.


Award ceremonies can be very simple and everyone can get involved in. Selected awards can be voted for anonymously, count up the votes, and hold an awards evening to celebrate the success of the great year you’ve had together as a team.


Who doesn’t like cake? Success always tastes a little sweeter with cake. Eating together is great for strengthening bonds in teams. Celebrating with cake can actually give your employees that ‘family-feeling’.

Final Thoughts

Celebrating success in your business will play a vital part in increasing morale and employee engagement, and reducing retention.

However, it is always important to define exactly what you are celebrating and why, so that your team know what to do in order to repeat their success time and time again.


What makes you tick?

The power of psychometrics in your business explained by H4P

What makes you tick?Psychometric tools can help you identify your motivational values, not just your behaviours. They can provides a starting point for understanding who we are and what motivates us.

Psychometrics are also powerful tools for leaders at all levels in a business. The critical insights they provide enable leaders and teams to focus on how they communicate to effectively and positively influence others who think and behave differently. Teams are diverse, so it’s critical to understand how differences impact our working relationships. The power of psychometrics is how quickly and easily it gets people connecting and really talking to each other. They help you to understand the basic needs of others, allowing you to lead with clarity and empathy, build stronger teams, and more effectively navigate conflict. The result is less conflict and better collaboration and trust, building productive work relationships for sustainable results.

6 Reasons Why You Should Celebrate Success More With Your Team

6 Reasons Why You Should Celebrate Success More With Your Team – Explained by Head 4 Performance

Ask yourself the following question.

“When did you last celebrate success with your team?”

Hopefully the answer will be recently or just last week ….

If not why not?

Have you not achieved anything recently?

Or have you missed the opportunity?

When your team achieves success, what do you do? We are often so busy we just move onto the next thing. Do you share a quick “well done” and then start on the next thing?. Over the years I can think of many a time when my teams have achieved some amazing results and we celebrated.. But I can also think about the times when we did achieve a goal or milestone and we just moved to the next one!

In our busy day, it’s all too easy to place immediate focus on your next task at hand and forget to stop and reflect on what’s been achieved. But if you ignore the wins of your team, you miss a vital opportunity not only to inspire your team on to even greater successes, but to strengthen your own leadership in the process.

Why is that important? It impacts what people think of you as a leader, do they want to work with you ? Do they feel motivated working with you? So, if you gloss over your team’s successes without recognition. How do you think employees perceive, think and feel about a leader when their efforts go unappreciated? Those perceptions also reflect on the company as a whole, and that kind of downward spiral can mean loss of some of your best team members and a downturn in results.

Here are the top 5 reasons why celebrating success is important for you, your team, your company, and for building up your own leadership brand.

Celebrating wins…


  1. Remind you of the goal you set and why it was important. It reminds the team what they have been working towards and the tasks they have completed to get there. It allows them to reflect on what went well and what their strengths are.
  1. Motivates the team. If your team feel appreciated and know you have noticed their efforts they will be even more productive next time.
  1. Focuses the team on the positive. Reminds everyone in the team of why it is great to be part of this team, being successful and achieving is important to keep the momentum and push forward for the business as a whole too.
  1. Builds trust and stronger relationships within the team. Celebrating success enables the team to learn more about each other, what makes them tick, how the relationships have build during this time, plus time to relax and enjoy the warm feeling that success brings.
  1. Reflect and Recharge. As part of celebrating success makes sure you give some time for reflection. Ask the team to reflect using the following questions:
  • What worked well?
  • What would you change for next time?
  • What are my favourite parts of the journey?
  • What have I learnt about your fellow team members and myself?
  1. Allows you to recognise and reward key players. When you are clear about what went well, recognise those in the team who demonstrated the values and behaviours that are important within the team and the wider business. Make sure you shout about the achievements and its impact on the business as a whole.

As a leader it’s your job to ensure that goals are achieved and that performance is increased therefore celebrating achievements is a great way to boost motivation, productivity and overall performance.

5 Ways to Empower Your Team

Leadership - Empowering TeamsMoving from telling your team what to do , to empowering them can be a tough journey for any leader.

The days of command and control are gone; a collaborative way of leading gains the best results. Every business requires innovation and usually at a rapid pace. These ideas cannot all come from you so empower your team and the growth comes quicker.

Here are 5 ways you can empower your team.

  1. Ask them what they would like to achieve in their future – this is key as if they know then they are more likely to be able to guide themselves rather than waiting for you to hand work to them.
  2. Autonomy give it freely – give your team space to make mistakes and give them freedom to make decisions. This increases their motivation and with increased motivation comes results.
  3. Help them understand their strengths – What are they good at? When do they feel they are at their best? What do they enjoy doing most?. Once they know this then they can achieve more by applying their strengths confidently. Give them “feedforward” so they can reflect and keep what worked and change what didn’t.
  4. Live the behaviours the way you want them to – this can be challenging and requires you to commit to this daily. Apply the same rhythm and rigour that you expect from your team to how you behave each day.
  5. Don’t give your team all the answers – your role is to orchestrate not to provide answers. This encourages the team to think about options and the impact of their approach. It also enables them to create their own style and find ways to deliver that work for them. Celebrating what they achieve is key.

Below is a little checklist for you to see if you are delegating or empowering your team. Which are you doing regularly?
