This week is an incredibly busy one at my day job.  As I oversee the execution of our Board meetings, I am acutely aware of how every single person involved plays a part in my success.  When all is said and done,  I make sure to take the time to send emails, leave voicemails, and personally thank each person who helps what is actually an incredibly intricate few days.  Being appreciated is no small thing.  When it’s time to do it all over again, we function as a team all the more successfully.  May I suggest taking a few minutes to check out this TED talk– it’s under five minutes and really brings home the power of the “thank you.”
