Failing To Express Gratitude

To continue with my comments on the book by Marshall
Goldsmith, “What Got You Here Won’t Get You There,” this
week I will be discussing the habit of: Failing To Express
Gratitude.

Over the years if there is one consistent theme that I
have heard from employees it is, “I don’t feel like anyone
appreciates what I do.”  This comment is almost always the
result of managers not paying attention to the specific
responsibilities of employees and managers failing to say,
“Thank You,” for the work that employees perform.

HR CONTRARIAN POINTER: If you want to build a dynamic
team, remember to thank your employees for their work as
often as you can.  And don’t be fearful of thanking people
too much.  I promise that they won’t resent you for it.
