The power of saying thank you is magnified when the action, gift, or interaction is accompanied with a thank you note or card.
Take the time to notice good contributions and successes. Daily feedback is best, weekly is admirable, but practice saying thank you nearly every day to some of your employees and coworkers. They and you will be happy that you took the time to care.
Gratitude is the simplest, most powerful way to acknowledge another person’s value and humanity.
- Send a note to someone. A quick affirmation can mean a great deal
- Buy someone a coffee or tea. They will appreciate the gesture.
- Send Mrs Fields Cookies. I promise they will love you.
Celebrate gratitude with joy. It costs little to say thanks. A simple touch, a hug, or helping out when they need it without being asked may be the most powerful gratitude message you can send.The little things are often the most important and meaningful.
