In a post at Consulting 101, Lew Sauder discusses how a little bit of gratitude can be very important, but people sometimes forget to give it. For instance, if you receive a hundred emails daily, you probably only respond to emails that specifically demand it. That does not include emails that report important information you requested, which may have required a lot of effort to put together. People can easily start to feel underappreciated when their efforts are not acknowledged. Thus, remind yourself of what you already know and start practicing more gratitude at work. Any time you see great work, acknowledge it, whether in email or in front of a crowd.
