Thoughtful Ways to Thank People in Your Network
Showing gratitude to people in your personal network can be pretty easy — and fun. An old-fashioned, handwritten thank you note on nice paper still goes a long way. Just be sure to include sincere appreciation for something personal and specific. Sending a small gift that really means something to the other person can be even more memorable. And don’t forget to pick up the phone on a regular basis. Keep a list of people whom you want to check in with periodically; when you have a few minutes, call the next person on the list. Even leaving a voicemail provides an opportunity to say thanks, to tell someone you’re thinking of them, and to offer a little encouragement. Small, regular displays of gratitude like this can make all the difference in important relationships.
