Your team was rocking this quarter. You exceeded your own product development timeline by almost 30 days. This allows us to release the product almost a month early which gives us great traction before the spring buying season begins.
You'd be the first to tell me that it's the team's efforts that will allow us to early release. But, that team needed a leader to help keep them on track. You also do an excellent job of providing timely feedback and recognition to team members.
People on your team feel important and appreciated. As a result, they work hard, have high morale, and accomplish amazing things. I wish that I had more team leaders who were as effective as you at team leadership.
In recognition of your team's contribution and success, let me know when you'd like to take half of a day off to participate together in a team building / recognition event of your choice.
I want you to know that the executive team really appreciates your efforts on our behalf.
