You Don't Have to Be a Genius to Motivate Others

Thank You

Thank you for reading.

Thank you for your shares, retweets, +1s, and emailing these posts on to others.

Thank you for leading - for the difference you are making in someone else's life.


I frequently write about the role of gratitude in effective leadership. 

We need the regular reminder. 

It's so easy in the urgency of our vision or the press of daily life to forget how much we are given.

Little Things

No one has to do anything for us.

Every act of service we receive...every kind word...every contribution of a team member...each of these is a gift for which we can be grateful.


It is a simple thing - but most of us prefer to serve where there is gratitude.

I know of no source of motivation greater than the power of sincere thanks - it communicates respect, acknowledges another's dignity, and keeps the thanker humble.

Take care and Happy Thanksgiving to all my U.S. readers!
