How well do you receive appreciation?
A client recently mentioned to me that nobody appreciated all that he did. Then, I was in a situation with him and a co-worker in which the co-worker went on and on about how much he appreciated all my client did.
My client sat there with a blank look in his eyes. I said, “Can you hear that and say ‘thank you’?”
My client looked surprised and said, “Thank you.”
Do moments of appreciation from others get missed by you!?
