"gifting" my coworkers is something i believe to be very important. as a manager in the service industry, i wear many hats: leader, motivator, trainer, coach, guidance counselor, friend... the key to our success at this hotel is engaging all of our 25 employees in the fun and chaos that is the hotel industry.
we have *mailboxes* for each employee that we use for distributing important information: our monthly newsletter, "way-to-go" messages, treats and candy. anything goes, really. the key is to keep up with it... nothing is more depressing than an empty *mailbox!* (as you can see, i have some work to do today!)
i am going to write a little handwritten note to each employee today. something that say "keep it up!" "i appreciate you!" "thanks for spending extra time in the laundry room yesterday!" personal notes are my favorite kind of Good Mail. i'm so happy to be able to share that with my team!
(don't you think it's funny that we call ourselves "the gators?" no surprise where that nickname came from...)
