The Time it Takes to Say Thank You

Some people when they walk through the doors of work change from being kind and well-mannered to terrible grotesque abusers of the role power that they have in the workplace. Yet there is an impressive list of commentors from business and military walks of life, who have all accepted the fact that to achieve the most from both your life and your career, nothing goes as far as a little good old-fashioned politeness.

Simple activities such as “good morning” to all at work, to verbally showing your appreciation for someone’s work go a long way to creating the correct impression in the minds of those that you must influence so that you may reach your objectives.

The greatest human desire is to be appreciated but only if that appreciation is sincere.
