Appreciation is one of life’s greatest motivators, so when we take the time to let people know that we value them, it inspires them to continue doing even more. That is precisely why gratitude is the ultimate gift that keeps on giving.
As a CEO, I found that the most powerful motivator for my employees was a simple note of thanks. There is no doubt that when we say the words “thank you,” we make the other person feel important and valued, which raises their self-esteem and helps improve their self-image. In addition, saying “thank you” not only improves their self-esteem, but it also improves our own self-esteem as well.
