Gratitude and encouragement can go a long way in strengthening relationships and boosting morale among colleagues! It feels good to know that your hard work is recognized and that the people you work with appreciate you.
How can you practice gratitude and encouragement at your workplace? There are many simple, yet effective ways to give words of encouragement and show your appreciation for your colleagues!
When you notice that someone is having a hard day or may be more stressed than usual, encourage them by pointing out their strengths or qualities that you appreciate about them. This can be uplifting and give them the boost they may need to get through a tough day or week. Another way you can encourage and show appreciation for your colleagues is to acknowledge their hard work. You can do this by telling them in person or sending a kind email expressing your gratitude for their efforts. One of the best ways to practice gratitude in the workplace is to say thank you! The next time you work with someone on a project or notice a coworker going the extra mile, be sure to thank them for all of their hard work.
We encourage you to express encouragement or gratitude to one person you work with at least once a week!
