Always tell people around you how grateful and appreciative you are of them.
It’s such a simple yet uplifting message.
Don’t wait until they do something for you or they’re sitting in your office during a quarterly or annual performance revue, say it everyday, whenever you get a chance and create a culture of support, recognition and positivity.
Out of money, success or job opportunity, feeling appreciated is one of the main career motivators.
Everything else can only go so far.
- A thank you at the end of an email
- Asking how they are
- Taking them for lunch
- Additional responsibilities & opportunities
Take time out of your day and appreciate those who work with you.
It will be the best return on investment you’ll ever see.
Investing in culture & relationships = success.
