English communication skills-  Networking & Relationships- Power of Writing Notes for Praise and Thanks


Little things in life touch us–like receiving a note from a work colleague or friend– think email, telephone text, paper.  Handwritten is a wow for the recipient: a note can brighten a day, bring a smile, inspire and sometimes change a life.  Expressing gratitude and praising helps people stay uplifted, focused and on track by reminding us to maintain an attitude of gratitude (even amidst tragic news such as war and pandemic).

Here are some four “S’s” of note writing.  A note should be:

  1. Sincere – Express your heart, your emotion.
  2. Short- One to three sentences.
  3. Specific- Focus on something specific to the recipient, i.e., “Great story in your speech about Stefan’s marketing strategy.”
  4. Spontaneous – Enthusiasm has long-lasting effect.

Send notes frequently that say “Thanks for:

  • Your confidence in me.
  • Your friendship.
  • The opportunity to learn more about your organization
  • Ideas you shared with me.
  • Your interest in our organization.
  • Your support.
  • The referral.
  • Sending that article (or the link to that blog).
  • Thinking of me.
  • Taking the time to…
  • The opportunity to do business with you.
  • You are one of my favorite clients. Thanks for being so great to work with
  • Meeting with me.
  • Your encouragement.
  • Staying in touch.
