Nearly every job requires asking someone to do something and to be asked something. It is the nature of work. The ask is necessary, but how it is communicated and received makes a difference. Showing appreciation and gratitude by saying please or thank you validates the effort put into a task and helps improve motivation. It is also polite and kind. It establishes a more human connection. Recognition also has positive payoffs. Like most things, the more we practice giving recognition, the better we get at it.
