Quality Doesn't Have To Come At A Price

When was the last time you thanked your employees . . . individually?  And I'm talking about just a simple thank you.

When was the last time you shook one of your employees hands?

When was the last time you sent one of your employees a simply - hand written - note of encouragement?

Wow, don't these things sound simple?  And notice one thing that each has in common - they don't cost a thing.  Nada!  AND, as a bonus to you . . . they take very little time.

If you take a look around you can find MANY simple, and free (or at least cheap), things that you can do for your employees to thank them, to encourage them, and to create team spirit.  And what's that going to do?  Among other things, it will help to create a quality driven atmosphere.

People typically react very positively to just simple acts of kindness and inclusion.  It gives them a sense of belonging and need.  And with those feeling's comes the desire to share them themselves.

So get ready to thank, shake, and write.  And while you're at it,  lets bring back the simple everyday "art" of conversation.
