Speak for yourself. Just because something is expected, does not mean one cannot also give a pat on the back to show appreciation for doing their job.<quoted text>
You don't get medals or pats on the back for doing your job. It is expected.
Ask any expert on management. Read any book on management and it will tell you to do this.
I understand this is your opinion, but you state it as if it an absolute fact that cannot be changed. It is not.
You have offered no examples or reasoning to show your approach is best. I have. That is what constitutes substance. Just claiming you way is best, is not a debate, it is just a baseless opinion.
Why would anyone take your advice, if you cannot show it is good advice? Show us your way is best.
