The Power of Influential, Specific Thank-You’s - Solo Round

May 7th, 2018 · 15 mins 40 secs

About this Episode

Sometimes, I think we get it wrong when it comes to saying, "Thank-You". I know that sounds strange, but it's true. We often get something so simple, like expressing our gratitude, wrong.

In fact, saying it incorrectly can lead to a reduction in motivation, learning and performance. That's right, it can have an opposite effect to what you are intending.

Powerful thank-yous are specific and meaningful. Be sure to include the observed behaviour, action or quality AND the difference it made for you or someone else.

Challenge for the week: give specific and meaningful thank-yous to the people in your life, especially to the people you've been wanting to thank for a long time.
