Ask Amelia: What makes recognition meaningful?

recognitionWhat makes recognition “meaningful”? And what is the most meaningful recognition you’ve received? 

The best recognition comes with many layers to it: timely, specific, and meaningful. Bring those aspects together with a thank you and you have delivered a home run. In my 20+ years of working, the most meaningful “thank you” I have received was incredibly personal, and helped me understand how I help others achieve their personal and professional goals. For me – it was a home run.
