When was the last time you thanked your court reporter? If you?re like a lot of people, the holidays are a time to sit back and appreciate all that you have – family, friends, colleagues, and your legal team. When people feel appreciated, they often do more than is expected of them. That can make your life a lot easier! Start today by thanking?someone in one of these ways.
Send a Thank You Note
No one gets handwritten mail anymore. It?s just bills and junk mail. Every once in a while we get a handwritten note and it truly makes us feel special. My husband and I have made a commitment to send more thank you notes this month and into the New Year to express our gratitude to personal and business connections. We couldn?t do what we do without their support, same for you and your court reporter.
Token of Appreciation
Just this week I received a card and gift card from a client thanking me for not only being there for them professionally but as their friend. That gesture truly warmed my heart and reminded me that it?s the little things that people remember. It?s how we make them feel appreciated that builds relationships.
Make sure your court reporter knows they?re appreciated this holiday season and year round by sending a token of appreciation like a gift card for coffee.
Tell Her (or him) About It
Somewhere in the midst of texting and social media we?ve lost the ability to talk to each other. I remember when I started working my boss would come out of his office to tell me he appreciated my work or the boss walked the floor of my retail job to hand out bonuses.
The next time your court reporter goes above and beyond for you, pick up the phone or take them to lunch to thank them for their dedication.
No matter how busy life gets, remember to thank the people who matter whether that?s a friend, spouse, or your favorite chocolate-loving court reporter.
