Power Thanking - 📌

In the workplace...

Larry and Fred worked as equals in the company's Maintenance Department until one day, out of the blue, Larry said to Fred, "Thank you for doing such a great job."

Instinctively, Fred replied, "You're welcome," and a new pecking order was established with Larry as the first pecker. Larry had discovered Power Thanking.

Soon, Larry began thanking all of his fellow employees. At first they wondered how it was Larry's place to be thanking them, but it was nice to be appreciated so they went along with it, and the more he thanked them, the more it seemed like everybody was working for Larry. And, then, one day, they were working for him. 

Larry had thanked his way to the top.
