Here’s a simple question for today, as we approach Thanksgiving:

What do you do to thank others—verbally and non-verbally?

At work and outside of work?

How do you make thanking them a habit?

    I have gotten (back) into the habit of hand-writing notes. Email follow-ups can be helpful–especially for the “here’s the link to that thing I mentioned” notes–but handwritten notes are rare and appreciated. They take more time than an email and you have to find a mailing address and a stamp, but they make a difference. I have gotten direct feedback from donors and collaborators about receiving a note in the mail. They can be super short if they are thoughtful and timely. I always appreciate when I receive hand-written notes–don’t you?
