The Real Reward

My friends who worked as waiters and waitresses talked about the $100 tip.  They would return to a table they had served to clean-up and find an extraordinary tip the when calculated added up to far beyond the normal percentage.  It was like winning the jackpot in their minds.  The tip was a form of victory.  Then the question came, what next?

Another friend said the best tip they received was an offer to work at a patron’s company.  The individual was not offering an immediate reward but was making a longer-term commitment in my friend’s talents.  The pay-off took longer but the impact was far reaching.

What rewards are you offering?  Which ones are truly meaningful?
