Leadership Appreciation: Thank You for Leading!

Time to Read: 1 min...   

Most leaders get limited recognition for all the effort they put into making their team and organization more successful. Employees look for and expect to be appreciated for their contributions but somehow forget to do the same for their boss.

If you have been looking for some love, here are some things we want to say thanks for...

Thank You

  • Putting in long hours to keep the ship in shape
  • Keeping your cool and reassuring us during tough times
  • Coaching us to perform better
  • Providing a sense of direction and purpose
  • Helping us learn from our mistakes
  • The kick in the butt and the pat on the back when needed
  • Listening
  • Having our backs when the pressure was on
  • Stretching us to achieve things we didn’t think we could do
  • Having a sense of humor
  • Providing the support and resources we need to get the job done
  • Giving us the elbow room to make decisions and act
  • All the other things you do to make this a great job and a great team
  • And, of course, being a caring spouse, partner, parent, and friend

Action Steps:

 The world needs more good leaders.

  • So, continue to grow personally.
  • Strengthen and support your people. 
  • Keep doing what you are doing – and do it better.

We need you!!
