The Candybox Awards: “The Power of Acknowledgment” Book Prize
“I have always been practicing appraisals for my co-workers, even before I became a manager, and having a chocolate candy box was a simple and powerful way to do it. Having read one Program Management-related magazine, back in 2005 , I was struck by Judy´s POA initiative, and immediately got in touch with her. A few months after, I luckily managed to meet her at IIL´s HC in NYC, and after that I have been buying several POA books, and ever since I have been recognizing my team mates with a candy box AND the POA book! Needless to say, it´s an incredible and touchy way to boost the employees’ morale and team´s motivation” - Daniel, Roberto A.S.; Senior Director, Engineering; Invensys, Brazil.
