“Wow! You Are Doing Great.” – – Tell Them!

When I was working inside a growing CPA firm, I liked to use WOW cards.

You can come up with your own version….. mine were small, folded note cards that said WOW on the front in various styles, colors and fonts. I would simply write a few encouraging words to someone who went above and beyond, demonstrated an act of kindness to another team member or perhaps they were celebrating something special (like passing a part of the CPA exam). I would write a brief note and place it on their keyboard or somewhere prominent on their desk so it would be there when they arrived in the morning.

At this time of year (and all year) remember to express a simple thank-you to those who are doing great work, helping clients, helping other team members and helping YOU.

Here’s a sample:
