Thanksgiving is around the corner and it’s time to give thanks. This time of year is the perfect opportunity to show your employees how important they are and make them feel valued, which is something we crave as humans.
CEO of The Energy Project, Tony Schwartz wrote an article for Harvard Business Review titled “The Only Thing that Really Matters”. He wrote that “the struggle to feel valued is one of the most insidious and least acknowledged issues in organizations. How we’re feeling — and most especially whether or not we feel acknowledged and appreciated — influences our behavior, consumes our energy and affects our decisions all day long, whether we’re aware of it or not.”
