Show your appreciation.
To say thank you is easy. Not to say thank you is also easy. But the outcome is completely different.
Until my mid-thirties, I worked for the company that people at the senior management levels rarely say ‘thank you.’ Well, at least to me. No matter how hard I worked, they just ignored me. They never said anything about my accomplishments. Instead, they often treated me like a criminal and interrogated me as if I always did something wrong. How could I stay motivated and trust higher managements of the company in such situation? Of course not.
It takes just a few seconds to say ‘thank you.’ But it may take years to restore broken relationship and rebuild trust — or after all, we may not be able to do so forever. It’s clear which is better for us.
