Gratefulness In Business
Demonstrating appreciation to others for what I have and how they have helped me

Gratitude is not Feedback
Have you ever had a supervisor thank you for something you did and then follow it with a critique or suggestion? That is not gratitude. That is feedback. Pay attention when you are giving someone praise or thanks that you limit it to just that, without a qualification that distracts from the Grateful gesture. While it is the job of the supervisor to provide feedback, there is a place and a time for that, and it is not right after a Thank You. This does not stop you from including appreciation or positivity in a designated feedback session or performance review. Just do not let it water down a spontaneous thanks.
