Grazie Mille, Italian for a thousand thank you's, is one of my favorite expressions.
In the spirit of the upcoming Thanksgiving Holiday, we wanted to share some thanks for the thanks we receive.
It's always a treat to hear it from clients. We are so grateful.
Handwritten thank yous are starting to lose its popularity but they are essential to building relationships! It is always nice to hear from someone thank you and even nicer to hear it in a handwritten card! For most of us, saying thank you sometimes just slips our mind. Whether it is to thank a friend for helping you move houses, a hiring manager that just had an interview with you, or a note to say thanks for whatever the case, thank yous are important for everyday health. Psychologists from PSYBlog found that psychologically it [thank you notes] has a very important role to play for both the person giving and the person receiving. All four studies reveal that gratitude is more than just a social nicety, or a way of making the helper feel good; it reassures others their help was actually appreciated and it encourages further pro-social behavior.
So there you go! Thank you notes offer a positive health for all parties involved; not to mention make great displays at our desks or home offices!
Don't forget to thank people for services, an act of kindness and post attendance to a party or a wedding.
