Discover the art in the language of appreciation. Even in the companies where appreciation is deemed important, efforts of expressing appreciation are often lost! Find out more why appreciation in the workplace is so important to the health of your employees and your business. Lest we forget, there are leaders that have made the thank you the “stuff of legends.” With lasting effect, they’ve built bridges, cemented loyalties and inspired others with by their written words.
Nelson Mandela embodied the grace upon which the letter of appreciation is best exemplified. The cynic in us may argue that the real purpose behind a thank you note is to advance an agenda. Politicking for a job, schmoozing a client or commending someone’s efforts solely for personal gain. My response is how many of your employees will be talking about the note that you sent to them 18 years from now. That is the essence of the right habits that we should be instilling in our organizations – let alone our children.
