Grateful in the Workplace – Appreciate Your Colleagues


It’s Wednesday already! Make today count.

Appreciate Your Colleagues

Every day is a good day to appreciate the people you work with. Thanksgiving just provides us with a reminder that it’s far too easy to let the days fly by without acknowledging valued contributions. It’s easy to appreciate people who have done you a favor or helped you out in some way, but be sure to appreciate your coworkers for who they are as well as what they do. People thrive when they know their contribution has meaning. Saying thank you builds trust and strengthens your relationships with your coworkers. Learn to graciously accept thanks. Brushing off a compliment, perhaps out of embarrassment or shyness, can discourage others from reaching out. Let others know that their words are meaningful to you.
