Recognition, as awkward as it may feel sometimes, is one the best things we as a culture can do to cultivate an environment of constant improvement. No matter how small or large the effort, simple recognition is always appreciated.

Professional organizations often offer opportunities for recognition to reinforce the positive things their members are doing which sometimes can push members to step outside their comfortable boundries and challenge themselves. When members take the step outside those comfy boundries they have set for themselves is where a leader is born. Being a leader means taking risks and learning from them whether the results be positive or negative.

Please review the list of potential recognition opportunities available and try to think of a fellow colleage who has stepped outstide their box of comfort to increase their leadership potential or the leadership potential of others.
