Give Yourself a Hand

Take a minute to celebrate your wins – big and small. It can be the gift that keeps on giving
It is that time of the year, when you look back and think, “Wow, I feel like I accomplished so much this year and yet at the same time like I’ve done nothing at all!” As a travel buyer we wear so many hats and juggle so many projects that even when we are highly successful at something, we tend to just see the next thing coming. We don’t take the time to celebrate our successes as much as we should.

In the last nine months, I decided to truly focus on the small successes that are achieved within my travel program and really celebrate the amazing things that my department does to transform the lives of our travelers.

For the small things, like my staff handling departmental changes with grace and optimism, I celebrate them. Whether it is a small thank you note or a shout out to the whole department, it is important for me to let them know that their hard work and positive attitudes make all the difference, not only to our department but to our travelers.

For larger successful projects I ensure that we celebrate together as a group, acknowledging that without each other we would not have been as successful as we are. Sometimes it’s just a luncheon in the office, sometimes drinks on me. But I vow never to let them forget that they contributed in a highly valuable way to the project.
