A nice touch of gratitude came in the snail mail from the New York State Bar Association the other day. It was a pleasure presenting at marketing conferences in the past and most recently at a webinar with 2 colleagues.
Each time they send a large envelope and a certificate such as this. This captures attention and is a documented way to say thank you. Their style. Classy.
My style? I thank someone who has gone above and beyond, on LinkedIn as a public forum.
Or I call someone to thank them verbally with the proper intonation.
Yes, I will also email thank yous once in a while but I prefer the other methods.
They are more in keeping with who I am and why I do what I do. Find your method and thank others as often as is deserved. It feels good, on the giving and on the receiving ends.
