Kai commented on A Day in Your Shoes

Hi Selena! Very easy to realize, but truly meaningful idea. I totally agree that this is not only the issue in academic sphere, but also in every other workplace setting. My question is, how would you argue in front of the management that this swapping will be of economic benefit in the long-run? I am sure there is a great reasoning for this out there...


Kai commented on Less is More

This is a great idea. Especially coming from a region where compliments and gratitude are expressed not so frequently, I value 'Thank you' as a phrase very different. Based on my experience, especially in anglo-american spheres the expression of gratitude is used inflationary. However, from my point of view limiting the use to a certain number will not have the desired effect. Instead, create an (need to be ideated on) incentive to reduce the use of thank-ypu-like phrases.
