If you want to have a workplace that's highly productive, fun and built on mutual respect, offering regular thanks to colleagues is key. No matter how brilliant you may be (or think you are), you're not likely to reach your highest potential at work if you don't have help from others.
And if other people are lending a hand, you really should tell them you appreciate it. Didn't your mom always tell you it's important to work and play well with others? And wasn't she always right about such things?
From my perspective, there's no better time than the holiday season to turn over a new leaf when it comes to expressing gratitude. As such, I'm challenging myself — and you — to offer sincere, specific thanks daily to a coworker and/or boss. Let's see if we can work together to boost that abysmal 10 percent figure quoted in the Journal article.
Who knows? We might just build better businesses while we're at it.
