Pass the Stuffing and the Smiles at Work This Thanksgiving

Family, a scrumptious bowl of stuffing, and the mouth-watering aroma of roasted turkey means Thanksgiving is in the air. With the holiday just days away, it’s important to take a moment to reflect on all the things you’re grateful for. In the spirit of gratitude, use this opportunity to show your coworkers – the second family you spent a bulk of your time with – some appreciation. By showing your colleagues how thankful you are, you not only solidify the strength and quality of your relationship with that individual, but you will also see a corresponding effect on your work, interactions, and future networking as a result.
