>> Do you think people celebrate their successes enough as leaders or get their team to celebrate successes? >> Absolutely not. We're afraid to celebrate success because it will make people lazy. If you congratulate people too much they think they've arrived. >> Mm-hm. >> And that comes down to this tough, tender sort of dynamic that fits into leadership. That leadership is not just about being mama. You know, and when I say mama, I mean there's some tough mama's, don't get me wrong. (LAUGH). But the grandma maybe, how's that? >>Okay.
>>Leadership is not just about being grandma, you know, I love being a grandparent. You give the kids everything they want it's not just about that. It's also about holding people to high expectations. And honoring people with that expectation. Saying to people, I think you fell short. You have more in you. And I, I'm going to tell you, there's something that happens inside of a person when somebody they respect says, I think you could do better. And we start to think, well maybe I can.
So there is this idea of celebrating successes. I think there needs to be so much more of that. Little ones, big ones, individual ones, team celebrations, pats on the back, Pizza Hut, whatever. all of that kind of stuff. And it doesn't negate the other side, it, it actually enhances performance. >> As long as we don't just become, sort of like, nurturing grandmoms. >> Right. >> Yeah. >> Right.
