Connect by Saying “Thank You”

Delivering a Letter#27 Say “Thank You” and Write Thank You Notes

When someone does something for you, be sure to say “thank you.” This seems obvious but you would be surprised how many people don’t do this.

If the person did something for you that required considerable effort on his/her part, send a handwritten thank you note. Several outstanding leaders we know send handwritten thank you notes on a regular basis. They know that a handwritten note stands out in this age of electronic communications and communicates that they value the recipient.

This is the twenty-seventh post in our series entitled “100 Ways to Connect.” The series highlights language, attitudes and behaviors that help you connect with others. Although the language, attitudes and behaviors focus on application in the workplace, you will see that they also apply to your relationships at home and in the community.
