Question: How making successes public can make you more productive

I'm looking for a psychologist who can discuss how making your successes public can help make you more productive / more successful.

Expert Insight

There is not a single answer that will address all contributors.  That is, different people will respond differently to having their success made "public."  And, it depends on what you mean by "public" - just within the group of peers? corporate wide? industry-wide? local newspaper?  What constitutes a success?

There is merit in acknowledging a person's contribution, especially if it is extraordinary or reinforces the direction you as a leader want to see taken in the group as a whole - but be discrete in your use of this tool.
