There’s something really wonderful that happens when you’re generous. YOU get to feel great. Don’t you remember the time you picked the perfect gift for a loved one and relished the moment the gift would be opened? Can you recall the time you introduced someone to another person in your network and they totally hit it off?

We already know you’re generous. Now imagine you were generous with intention. What if you decided that once a week you were going to give yourself the gift of giving to someone else?

Examples of how you can be professionally generous?

  • Write a recommendation for someone on LinkedIn

  • Offer to connect two people you think might be able to help each other

  • Remind someone of their unique and valuable contribution to a project

  • Tell a peer’s boss how much you like working with them and why

We could go on. And we want you to. This week, do one generous thing for someone else.



“You cannot do a kindness too soon because you never know how soon it will be too late.”

—Ralph Waldo Emerson
