Sandy, thanks for your insightful comments.... :)
By the way, on what you said above, I've read an interview with Richard Branson where he says he practically never criticizes his employees....
"I will praise, praise, praise," [Richard Branson] says, "and only criticize if they are going to kill themselves crossing the road. People know when they've done things wrong; they don't need to be told. When I write my letters to employees, you'll never see a line of criticism."
(I've linked to the article this is from below - it's from the second-last page of the article....)
I think Richard Branson is known as someone who can really inspire his employees - in general, from what I hear, people love to work for Virgin
.... I think constant criticism often doesn't really help much, it's much better to praise when people do things right.... I think it can make a big difference....
Just my opinion. :)
