May - Be Appreciative

May 1, 2017

“Appreciate good people.  They are hard to come by.”

On a daily basis I’m wowed by the attitude, energy and passion that I see in our team here at OneDigital. It’s a reminder of how far we’ve come together and the exciting path we have in front of us. I never want to take this gift for granted, and I’m reminded of this unique culture on a regular basis. Visitors at the corporate office ALWAYS say they are astounded by the positive energy that comes from our people.  I see that in our offices around the country as well, and I’m so proud of the company that we’ve built. I appreciate YOU!

Today, I’d like to encourage you to be appreciative of your team, your peers, your manager and whoever else helps make OneDigital who we are today. It takes a village for us all to be successful and every individual contributes to the whole. Please take the time to recognize that and say thank you. You’d be surprised by how much a small gesture or a few words can positively impact someone’s day.

And, it’s catching. I read recently “by implementing gratitude into company culture, employees are more willing to spread their positive feelings with others, whether it’s helping out with a project or taking time to notice and recognize those who have gone the extra mile.” At OneDigital, we definitely practice this and it’s one of our important principles in the Digital Way. Elizabeth Chrane often says that we need to be intentional and purposeful in our culture. We’ve built a company where this happens naturally, but it helps to have a reminder and make gratitude a part of our daily routine.

I loved seeing in the most recent Fresh Thinking newsletter all the creative ways that offices and departments say Thank You internally. It’s great to see everyone taking an active interest in recognizing their teams and giving thanks.

So please join me this month in Being Appreciative. I truly appreciate all of you, and I’m so thankful for the special organization we are building together.
