"ThanksLeading" #leadership #thanksgiving #givethanks

Thanksgiving is just one week away, where we spend time with family and friends, reflecting on all the things we are thankful for.  This next week, prior to celebrating Thanksgiving, try leading with “thanks”.  What a great time to express thank you to all those that help you and your organization achieve success all year long.  

“ThanksLeading” examples: 

·       Send a note home to the families of your direct reports saying; “thank you for the time that is sacrificed at home in support if our work. We just want to let you know how much we appreciate your family”.

·       Say “thank you” to those unsung departments or individuals that support you and your team that we might take for granted.

·       Tell a customer (internal or external) “thank you” for their partnership and business.

·       Express “thank you” to your team for the opportunity to be their leader and the trust they instill in you.

I can’t think of a better way to get in the spirit of Thanksgiving than by “ThanksLeading”.  Just try it and see what impact it will have on you and even more importantly those you say thank you to!
