One thing I have noticed about most great leaders is they are grateful. They are grateful to have achieved success but most importantly, they are grateful to those people who help them achieve success. Part of that gratefulness includes regularly “thanking” their customers (external and internal).
See November 14 blog titled, Thank You
We recently received a newsletter from The Telephone Doctor that addresses this issue (among a few others). See the article here and pay special attention to point #5. I like the acronym WACTEO (We Are Customers To Each Other).
Great leaders remember everyone is their customer and treats everyone with respect and gratefulness. How many people have you thanked today?
