Take your nice thoughts and shove them…in a box

Posted by coalescemarketing on April 16, 2009

Remember when you were a kid and your elders told you “if you don’t have something nice to say, don’t say it all?” Well, as that’s a slightly negative statement in itself, we have our own somewhat more uplifting philosophy here at Coalesce: when you have something nice to say, write it down and put it in a box.

We’re not talking about things like “it’s a nice day outside,” or “I like your shirt,” although those statements certainly are nice. Our intent is to capture sincere appreciation messages from one colleague to another. Think hard…when was the last time you told someone you truly appreciate them? We’re all guilty of letting too much time pass between each “thank you” and “you’re a rock star” compliment.

Of course, these notes of appreciation won’t stay boxed up for long. Our Coalesce Appreciation Box will be emptied weekly and shared with the rest of the team as a note of praise. It’s our version of the shiny gold star sticker…but with more bragging rights.

Now think again…who do you owe a big note of “thanks” to today?
