Show Genuine Appreciation at Work

How many of you make it a point to send messages of appreciation? Everyone loves to be appreciated. You don't have to be a boss or manager to recognize the people around. Every one of us should do it. When you show people appreciation, they feel better about their work and themselves. When they feel better, they're more motivated in their work. However, motivating people shouldn't be the only reason to send appreciation, that's the byproduct. The real reason to convey your gratitude is that it feels good, it's kind, and your focus is on the positive.

If you work in an office environment that's antagonistic or pessimistic, you can help the situation by sending appreciation to those around you. Even if the office environment doesn't change, your place in it does. Make it a habit and people will value you. As a result, you will feel less of the adverse energy around you.

Acknowledge the people that work with you. They deserve it as do you.
