In secondary school, I was appointed a prefect against all odds or logic (as far as I was concerned) and one of the things I quickly learnt was the need to appreciate people.
Sometimes you need to tell people more than thank you. You need to tell them that they look good and amazing, you need to be polite, respect their person when you speak by avoiding unnecessary jokes at their expense. Let them feel special. Listen more and talk less, be available for people to locate you, don’t lock yourself up unnecessarily.
By doing so you win them towards you, and most importantly you show you care. Do it out of a caring heart and not with a hidden motive or a political agenda.
