Why do thank you notes matter? In this excerpt from a Coach Chat, KK Owen and Erica Callaway talk with a group of administrators about the power of recognition, while sharing their own recent experiences with the simple thank you note.
  • How can you craft a thank you note that is meaningful for the receiver? 
  • Choose a person on your team to recognize by sending a sincere, handwritten thank you note. 
00:00
the way to help connect us to why this
00:03
matters think back to a time when you
00:06
were recognized by a leader what
00:11
mattered to you about that recognition
00:14
and you don’t have to tell us when it
00:19
was or why it happened or what it was
00:21
about but what was it that mattered to
00:23
you about that specific recognition
00:26
think back for a minute and share with
00:29
us on chat what you think mattered to
00:32
you Daniel already said this handwritten
00:42
note there’s nothing like a handwritten
00:44
note such validation for you as well
00:46
Joanne yes it is
00:51
and I will tell you that some of you
00:54
were with us in Nashville at our
00:56
regional conference last week and today
00:58
I received a handwritten note from Erika
01:02
thanking me for the presentations that I
01:05
did at Nashville and I guarantee you
01:08
I’ll hang on to that note it matters to
01:10
me that Erika took the time to write
01:12
that note um thank and the person was
01:16
sincere is what Tammy says that that’s
01:19
what she noticed and then same thing
01:24
from Joann it was meaningful the person
01:26
made it personal they knew me and they
01:29
linked that into the recognition Dennis
01:32
same thing personal and specific notice
01:34
that people keep the notes that I have
01:35
done genuine appreciate just from John’s
01:38
renewing appreciation that great work is
01:40
being noted so interesting we have some
01:43
names emerging and we did Verity and
01:46
sincerely ingenuity genuine personal
01:50
personal those matter so it doesn’t have
01:54
to take a lot of time it doesn’t have to
01:56
be lengthy it doesn’t have to be every
02:01
day the fact that it is sincere genuine
02:05
personal is what makes it meaningful to
02:08
employees so anytime you can and add
02:11
that personal piece in
02:13
it’s really really well and Mark just
02:16
said as well which I was thinking it’s
02:18
funny because I know KK this is gonna
02:20
sound like a love fest because we do
02:22
love each other but KK talking about the
02:25
nerd I wrote to her but I had the same
02:26
experience one day I just randomly came
02:28
back to the office and there was a
02:29
thank-you note from KK oh they’re older
02:31
man I didn’t even notice that you
02:32
noticed that and so I think take our
02:35
marks point about unexpected it’s also
02:38
well taken because that was I think that
02:41
for me the last time you know his knee
02:43
was this is a message
