Thankful Thursday: Showing appreciation

Thankful Thursday: What are you thankful for at Vanderbilt?

Join Employee Appreciation as we make each Thursday in November a “Thankful Thursday.” Take time out of your week to reflect on and highlight all of the positive moments or people you experienced within the past seven days. Whether it is someone who helped with a major project, or someone who always has a positive attitude, it is important to notice and appreciate the little things in your life.

Exercise: During meetings this week, save a few minutes for team members to share a quick appreciation. Don’t overthink it. It can be as simple as “I’m grateful to Sarah for making the coffee extra strong this morning,” or “Thanks to Tom for helping me organize my presentation files so I could be more efficient in front of my leaders.”

Be sure to share your news and photos on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter using #youmakevu to add it to our online collection. Follow us at @youmakevu.
