Have you thanked your court reporter?

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.

Mentorship: Cloning Your Work Ethic, Vision and Values

Mentor

Leadership: Building Leaders of Tomorrow

Did you start as a clone of an excellent leader from your past?  We all have that one mentor that completely changed the landscape of our career path.  Have you run with that assistance and become an average or excellent leader?  Which do you believe will bring you the most success?  What defines the two?  Quickly the conversation turns to mentoring.

Excellent team members, (future leaders) are no accident.  They are also not the result of being led by tyrants, bullies or self-serving misogynists.  The strongest team members are groomed by those who take the time to be excellent leaders.

Rising stars are rarely created by senior leadership that is too vested in barking out directives, duties and deadlines week after week, but rather by superiors who invest the time to engage in an interpersonal relationship with a team member’s professional success.   You’ve seen it time after time, a leader that rules without positive reinforcement and coaching falls short of his peers, is unliked, and often miserable.

If your objective is to lead a dynamic team of successful rising stars, like yourself, start with the objective to clone yourself, one person at a time.  Define your own strengths and gifts, what you bring to the table, as well as the pitfalls that you’ve had to maneuver through to get to where you are today.  Focused talent development is an efficient and effective tool to drill down on each teammate’s strengths, and takes a selfless leader, willing to care about those he is charged with leading.
