Happy Valentine's Day!
Although it's often thought to only apply to romantic relationships, V-day is a great chance to show everyone around that you care.
This month, Forbes published a list of four ways to remind your team that they are valued:
- Intentional conversations: Try going for coffee or stopping by their desk and have a conversation that starts with "What are you working on?" Choose a curious tone vs a judgemental tone.
- Show them they're needed: Write an email to someone outside of your team and mention the positive actions of someone on your team. CC that person.
- Challenge them: Share a project you are working on and ask if they'd like to help with part of it. Then ask what part.
- Recognize their individuality: Stop by their desk, look them in the eye and thank them, sincerely for a task they did that required effort.
Better than chocolate? Yes, because these tips won't give you cavities or add to your middle.
How do you share the love?
