Lately, I’ve been scheduling time to talk to people about what they are doing. It’s important to my growth and development as a leader and though I am embedded in a tech-driven culture, I am still a people-person.
Today someone sent me a simple thank-you in the form of an gift-card.
“Thanks for the time on the phone the other day. I realize you have a packed schedule & respect the fact you took 45 mins to mentor. I appreciated the words of encouragement & the sheer fact of hearing from one who is involved in a career I’m seeking.”
What are you doing to thank and affirm others? What does this say to you?
