PLAN. COMMUNICATE. LEAD.
Always remember to show gratitude to the people you work with. Not only for some major achievements or results but for smaller things on a daily basis. “Thank You” – 2 simple words, but they give so much meaning and incentive. Saying thanks costs nothing, but gives everything😊.
I remember I used to have a manager, who, in fact, was one of the best managers I had a pleasure to work with. And he always said “thank you” to his team, even for the smallest things we did. We were ready to do anything for him. He was generous in showing gratitude and appreciation. It was not about his super management skills, it was not about him as a professional. It was all about him connecting with people, understanding them, appreciating them, and being one of them.
Unfortunately, today people often forget to say thank you. People very quickly get used to take everything for granted. That e-mail, which your colleague sent to you on time as per your request. That research your developer did by investing his personal time after work. That note, which your colleague forwarded to you in case you might need it. Do you notice all those smaller things?
We are all humans. And as human beings, we all need appreciation, attention, and recognition. Remember that when working with your teams and colleagues!
Thank you for reading this short insight from my side😃
