In 1986, Woody Hayes, the legendary football coach, delivered a commencement address at The Ohio State University where he noted that “You can never really pay back. You can only pay it forward.” Pay it forward means to extend the good that you have received by spreading kindness or a warm welcome to others. Hayes  went on to say, “Hard work, tough decisions, teamwork, family values, and paying ahead will help to change this world and make it a better place.” As a leader, you can pay it forward to your team, support them in their journey, and make their workplace better.

The holiday season is a perfect time to pay it forward for their benefit. Team members want to be recognized, heard, included, and for their work to matter. Small gestures make a difference and don’t have to cost much money.
