The results reflected that my organization scored a 54/80 points, stating that my organization gives a moderate amount of gratitude.  To summarize, leaders encourage their followers to thank and recognize the contributions of others, but sometimes fail to do so themselves.  In an organization which is staffed by many young folks who are typically learning the ropes of corporate society, it is important to begin with  a positive first impression, to teach them that leaders do not simply designate tasks, but encourages creativity, initiative, and appreciating the support of their teams on various projects.  Of course, from this manner, one must also teach them the difference of excessively praising people and having sincerity in each moment when you thank them for their actions.  It may seem like a minor issue as a part of business etiquette, but proper manners, learning and giving respect, and being themselves contribute to a better working environment.
