We have all seen those flyers announcing a “Customer Appreciation Day.” Businesses offer special pricing to show their appreciation. They want to express their gratitude for customer business.
Leadership appreciation is also about being thankful.
The true expression of appreciation is summed up in understanding the depth of our gratitude. Cicero claimed; “gratitude is not only the greatest of virtues, but the parent of all others.” (Cicero, ‘Pro Plancio,’ 54 B.C.)
As leaders, we need to examine our level of gratitude.
When was the last time we expressed our gratitude?
What actions or qualities move us to be thankful?
How often do we express our gratitude? Once a year, month, daily?
Have we considered why we should be thankful?
Today is Thanksgiving. We cannot overstate the need to be thankful more than just one day a year.
Among all the areas for which I am thankful, I am thankful to you for your loyalty in reading the Leadership Fund.
I know you are thankful for the physical and spiritual ways God has blessed your lives.
To Him be the glory.
