My idea for how to go about solving this problem is rather simple. I work with about 45 other people, so it is better for me to come up with simple, but effective ways for me to show gratitude to my coworkers that also builds their confidence. The idea stems from showing my appreciation for their work and acknowledging how it benefits the community we live in. Acknowledging their work is the key component in to solving the problem. This is because in order to build their confidence in the workplace, I must focus my attention to acknowledging their work to show them that they are capable of doing and completing the task correctly. When I was first an RA in the residential dorms there was so much training, in such a short amount of time that I never really felt confident in doing task by myself. Using gratitude to enhance the confidence of others early is also key component.
My idea to show gratitude to enhance the confidence of my coworkers is to utilize the resources at hand such as their personal mailbox, paper and pen. Throughout the week, I plan to watch my coworkers closely at work and jot down on a piece of paper things that they’ve done and exceptional job at. At the end of each week, I will place the notes into their mailbox. I believe that overtime; this act of gratitude will reflect their confidence level in the workplace.
