Upgrade Your Appreciation

boss-praising-employeeI served on the board of the Oklahoma Chapter of National Speakers Association. The president of the organization during my service was Kristine Sexter. She was an amazing and authentic appreciator of her team. Even though she was a thorough, consistent leader, I loved working with her because of her lavish appreciation.

There are many more creative, heartfelt, and specific way to say thank you. Here are some examples that I pulled from Kristine Sexter’s thank you e-mails that she sent to me and to our board members.

Perfect!
Exactly what I was looking for.
Thank you for keeping this fabulous momentum going!
AWESOME! You continue to impress me with
your focus, drive, and professionalism.
YOU GUYS ROCK! Thank you for
your commitment to our mission.

Outstanding display of teamwork,
collaboration, and positive attitude!

I don’t know what I’d do without you.
