People remember individuals who go beyond what’s expected. When someone thanks you directly, take note. A genuine “thank you” is a real indicator of a growing relationship.


What do people thank you for? What caused them to say it? What can you learn from that? Can you make any subtle (and humble!) shifts in how you show up that might inspire people to say “thank you” more frequently?

    Learning from how people appreciate our contributions is not easy. It requires us to listen to what we did well and analyze what we didn’t do so well, and learn from both.
