Is it okay to give feedback to a direct about not saying thank you after I help them?
I've got a direct who rarely says thank you to me. My feeling is that saying thank you shows that you're aware someone has made an effort to help you, that you appreciate the effort that they made on your behalf (and thus they would infer that you would like them to continue making such efforts), and also a thank you greases the wheels, making things flow more smoothly, relationships more cordial.
So far I've only noticed it in terms of her response (or lack thereof) to me. Perhaps my next step should be to watch and listen how she responds to her peers when they help her? Or can I give her feedback based on my own experience? If so, what would it sound like?
Thanks again for any help!
