How It Works
1. As you go through your workday, take note of all the people you interact with and the specific role they play in making things run smoothly. Who empties your trash can? Replenishes snacks? Sets the agenda for your meetings? Provides you with that helpful stat or article, so you can backup your argument?
2. Of the people in #1, take a moment to think about the contributions that you feel genuinely grateful for. Make a list of the 2-3 reasons why you are particularly thankful for their work/effort.
3. Next time you see the person in #2, offer up a thank you and be specific about why what they do is so appreciated by you. If it feels appropriate and you are in a position to do so, send a note to this person's boss or supervisor to let them know what a positive impact their team member is having on you.
