EP047: Celebrating Success in the RFP Process – with Lisa Rehurek
In the stressful, deadline-driven world of RFPs, it is crucial to infuse a little fun into the workplace. Keep morale high and you won’t lose the people who make your team successful. But what’s the best way to keep a proposal team happy and motivated? I believe it all starts with celebrating your successes.
Today on the podcast, I’m explaining how to develop a culture that celebrates success with your team. I discuss how to take inventory of what success looks like for you, celebrating both winning proposals AND milestones along the way, and offer insight around how celebration boosts morale and alleviates stress and frustration.
I go on to share several ideas for how to celebrate success with your proposal team, including voting on an MVP for each RFP and tracking wins with a Success Box. Listen in to understand the connection between celebration and long-term success and learn how to inject a little FUN into the intense, high-pressure world of RFPs!
