Appreciation At Work: KEEP IT ALIVE.
Do These In The Next Four Weeks.
Have you ever felt your contribution is not being appreciated at work? Do you feel appreciation at work is lacking? If you have, then join us to keep appreciation at work ALIVE.
This November 24 till December 24 is “The International Death Of Appreciation At Work Month”.
The idea is simple.
If you have felt being unappreciated at work before then you know how it feels. If you know how the lack of appreciation feels then make sure you appreciate those whom you work with by expressing your appreciation to them.
If you keep it alive then appreciation at work will not be dead.
So What Do You Have To Do?
Choose a day in the month to wear black - ideally November 24 since it is the first day. It’s just a symbolism to remind you that, for this month you will be mindful and aware of the kindness others have shown you at work and express your appreciation to them.
Every week for the next four weeks, choose at least 3 people (of course, you can choose more) at work whom you would express your appreciation. It can be an email, a post it note, a letter, a thank you note, buy them lunch or better yet face to face. The important thing is to make it sincere. Be specific about your experience where they have helped you and appreciated their contribution.
Why November 24 To December 24?
It’s the year-end, a time for you to reflect and contemplate what you have done for the year. Many people have contributed to your success, big or small on your path to success. Learn to thank these people. If you have felt unappreciated before, kill that vicious cycle.
Let it stop with you. Keep the appreciation alive by expressing your gratitude.
Who Should Participate?
Everyone regardless if you are a newbie or a big boss, your motivation at work will get a big boost when people show you gratitude. That way, it builds teamwork and positive feeling at work. You would have created a positive cycle.
Help spread the word, blog it, tag it, put a link on your facebook or email your friends. Keep the appreciation alive by celebrating “The International Death of Appreciation At Work Month”. If you do not keep appreciation at work alive, then it will really die.
