The Power of Thank You

As a leadership coach, my job is to help people build the skills to make them better leaders. I was reminded recently that a lesson we all learned back in kindergarten is probably the most important and impactful of all:

The power of thank you.

One of the people I’ve been coaching gave me this wonderful thank you card last week to acknowledge the work we’ve done together.  I found myself really moved by this.

➡️ It was totally unexpected, which made it even more impactful.

➡️ It showed me this person really appreciated how I’ve supported them and they shared some examples that I wasn’t even aware of.

➡️ It was a topic of conversation at dinner with my kids. It made me feel good and made them proud (not easy to do with a middle schooler!)

➡️ And, it made me want to do whatever I can to support this person moving forward.

As leaders, it can be easy to get caught up in the issues of the day or the latest leadership “lists.”We may think that adults who are getting paid don’t need to be acknowledged and thanked.

My advice? Remember to look for ways to thank your people. Don’t underestimate the importance of a well-placed pat on the back and most importantly, be sincere.

It turns out, you already learned the most important skill of all – saying thank you.
