This would be the equivalent of a quick hitter in basketball.
It’s a “deceptively simple 3-min segment video from Dr. Laura Trice as she impresses upon viewers the power of the magic words “Thank You” – to deepen a friendship, to repair a bond, to make sure another person knows what they mean to you.”
Try it. (That is, try the link, try a thank you..!)
How often do you as a teacher-coach, say thank you to your athletes?
I was watching a snippet on UConn women’s head coach, Geno Auriemma, talk about how he wanted to win this championship for his senior guard Renee Montgomery. He says, she “deserves it.” He went on to say that she’d done everything asked of her; everything that Sue Bird and Diana Taurasi had done before her.
I think that was his way of trying to say, thank you, to Renee.
BTW – Thank YOU for being a part of theLLaBB.
(And, yes… yes. I’m an undercover TED-izen! You can be too.)
