4 Ways to be a Giver at Work

4 Ways to be a Giver at Work

Here are eleven things you can give freely at work:

1. Encouragement. I’m working on a project that’s stretching me out of my comfort zone. A colleague sent me an encouraging email ending with “YOU’VE GOT THIS.” Those three simple words gave me courage to press on.

2. Thanks. Make your thank-you sincere, specific and heart-felt.

3. Time. Look around – who is struggling? What expertise can you share that will ease their load? Where can you step in and help out, even if just for a few minutes?

4. Attention.Put down your phone. Turn away from the computer. Look your colleague right in the eye and listen.
