Beating “Interacting with Others” Hurdle #7

What is your interacting with others hurdle #7?

I do not send a thank you email or note to colleagues.

What can you do?

– Buy a box of professional stationery and send out a thank-you note as soon as possible. State what your colleague did for which you are thanking them and why his or her actions made a difference. Close with a note of appreciation.
– Create three or four thank you templates on your computer and save the templates in your draft folder. This is an easy way to send a basic thank you note quickly.
– Take a few moments to thank a person “in-person.” While a note is great, nothing beats a physical stop-by to thank a colleague in-the-moment.
