The late Max DePree, former CEO of Herman Miller, wrote the following in his book, Leadership Is An Art, "The first responsibility of a leader is to define reality. The last is to say thank you!" (emphasis ours)
As we move towards the U.S. holiday of Thanksgiving, Tim and Nathan discuss the importance of saying "Thank You", key constituencies to whom we should be directing our thanks, and incorporating saying "Thank You" into our normal leadership routine...not just once a year.
