Two little words that when put together and spoken aloud are two of the most important words in the English language. How simple it is to say, or write, 'Thank You', yet so many times we miss the perfect opportunity to do so.
Saying thank you is a quick and easy way to make friends and solidify relationships. Whether personal or professional, sending a thank you note always scores big points with the recipient. After all, who doesn't like to hear that they are appreciated?
Our thank you letter sample template will assist you in saying thanks in a manner that is meaningful and effective. Opportunities are plentiful! For instance, you can thank someone for their time; for making an extended effort; for going the extra mile; for completing an important project; for accepting a new position or responsibility; for helping in someone's absence; for volunteering their time or money; for participating fully in a meeting or for just bringing up a particularly helpful idea or solution.
Praising your employee and saying thank you in public is especially meaningful since you are telling not only the individual, but the entire team how much you appreciate this person.
"People who produce great results, increase their self-confidence and feel great about their accomplishments. However, don't thank people for activity alone, thank them for results."
When you praise an employee in front of the team, this can be an effective way to let your entire team know what behaviors and performance levels you expect and are looking for in everyone.
Leaders who make the effort to say thank you on a regular basis tend to be leaders who are highly respected.
Saying thank you shows others you care and that you appreciate what they bring to the team. Gratitude for others promotes a healthier work environment and promotes positive habits throughout the workplace.
