The simplest pick-me-up

culture project tools Nov 24, 2022

My secret weapon on project teams is thank you notes.

Short, simple and specific.

I write them on Monday morning as a great way to start the week.

Usually delivered via email, but occasionally a handwritten personal card for extra impact.

I prompt project leaders to write them too.

As an introvert, a thoughtful, well-timed thank you does more to motivate me than any public recognition ever could. (Know your audience!)

Writing a thank you is the easiest pick-me-up. For others. For me. ❤️
