I know Lynda has worked very hard to build her Driving Miss Daisy franchise into the successful companion driving service that it is and she is very deserving of this award. Well done Lynda, Bruce and Kaye. Wednesday night was a night of celebrating business success for Hutt Valley businesses. Another Upper Hutt busi- ness, Ascot Cinema, also made it to the final in the innovation category. To see the winners of all categories visit the chamber website at hutt-chamber.org.nz How do you celebrate success in your business? It is not every day that we can win prestigious business awards but it is every day that we have little successes in our businesses. In business some- times we are so focused on our big goals we forget all the small wins we make along the way. Business is often very hard work and it is important to acknowledge our effort and our achievements as business owners and those of our team members. Here are some ideas for celebrating everyday successes and keeping a focus on the posi- tive. Staff awards -- might seem a little old hat but people love to be recognised for their good work. The key is to mix it up, don t let it get stale. You could have employee of the month/week, pride in work award, best customer service award, most creative award, best ideas award, highest sales, best team player, and any others you can think of that fit for your type of business. Some can be awarded by the manager, others can be staff nominated and decided. Remember to give little rewards and recognition to your staff when they have worked well. It could be a hand written thank you card, a bottle of wine, movie tickets, a morning tea, a chocolate fish, or simply a clear, thank you for . . . . Don t forget yourself either -- you probably deserve a coffee out or some other little treat to reward you. Recognition of great work can be reinforced using acknow- ledgement in newsletters, your facebook page, blog, at staff meetings or on thank you cards, certificates or small trophies that people can display. For yourself if you are the business owner make sure you have rewards attached to your goals, including those sub-goals that lead to the larger ones. When you achieve those goals take the time to give yourself the reward. You deserve it. If you are going through a patch where there seems little to celebrate then one suggestion is to keep a success diary. Get a notebook and every day write the date and at least three good things that happened dur- ing that day -- they could be very small things, a person in the street smiled at me, a cus- tomer thanked me for helping them, we made a good sale. Make yourself do this every day and not only will you start looking for the good things and appreciating little wins but by the end of the week you will have in excess of 20 successes written in your notebook. When we are at school the 3 Rs are the foundation of our learning. Well in the work place the 3 Rs are a foundation for creating a motivating environment -- in this case I am referring to reward, recognition and reinforcement. Actively look for waystousethe3Rsinyour business and your business will be the better for it. And one other thing -- look for ways to have fun at work too.

Fundraiser payback for support A local family who lost a baby to stillbirth are organising a fundraising golf tourna- ment at Trentham Golf Course on Thursday, December 1. Two years ago Trentham couple Laura Hurley-Berry and Bryon Berry lost their first child, Tabitha Rose, who was stillborn at 38 weeks. They have since had a son, Mitchell, now nine months. Mrs Hurley-Berry said Sands Wellington/ Hutt Valley, part of a national network of support groups for people who have lost a baby, had been fantastic and they wanted to give something back. Mr Berry is not a golfer but thought a tournament would be a good fundraiser. The Sands Golf Classic is an ambrose tournament. Teams, consisting of four players, compete against each other, and entry is limited to 32 teams. Entry is $200 for a team of four or $50 per person.
