An Even MORE Powerful Thank-You Strategy

Here is a great tip from the great book  How to Talk to Anyone– 92 Little Tricks for Big Success in Relationships by Leil Lowndes … especially when dealing with internal or even external resources (whether a candidate, a client/business partner, or even a vendor).

 

You receive a gift, a favor, a sacrifice, an anything that you want to (or must!) thank someone for. Of course they appreciate (or expect) a thank-you note or E-mail. But here’s a way to thrill the giver as well (as get on their “extraordinary people” list.)

Two weeks after your first thank-you note, ponder the pleasure their present gives you. Then write a SECOND thank-you communication. It will warm their heart — and their feelings for you!

Now, lest that sound self-serving, sending a second thank-you is, well, a very nice thing to do. Making people happy, even it hadn’t make you special in their eyes, is well worth the effort.
