Love is something you DO

Valentine’s Day isn’t just for lovers.  It’s a day to celebrate your love for all people, including your family and your work family.  Traditionally we buy cards, flowers, chocolate, even dinner in restaurants to show people how special they are to us and how much we appreciate them.

There are other ways to show love, and it only requires taking action.

Love  is something you do.  It’s the small and big things: the random acts of kindness, surprises, extra support, smiles, conversations, pats on the back, compliments, patience, kind thoughts, compassion, and many other acts of doing something for someone else.

Read 10 ways that you can love people and strengthen your team at work this Valentine’s Day week.  I guarantee you that these respectful ways of appreciating others, or working together as a more cohesive team will deliver results long after the occasion has passed.

Forward this to a co-worker and get the whole office on the band wagon of doing good things for each other.  I would love to hear your stories, so please comment on how you’ve used love to enhance your team’s bonding this week.

Sending you all BIG love, and appreciation for your readership, frequent comments and encouragement.
