Yesterday during the football game, I had a conversation with a friend of mine who also happens to be a mentor to me. She was reliving some stories of past positions she has held. A remark she shared made me smile and will stick with me. She referenced that people like to be told ‘thank-you’ and feel appreciated. It’s such a simple gesture but yet can make a huge difference. I was reassured in that moment that I’m not the only one who still gets a good feeling when I hear those simple words. Whether you did a small favor or played a key role in a project someone was leading, it is still nice to be told that someone is grateful for helping them.
