The 7 Steps to Power Note
By Michael J. Maher, MBA
1. Use Unbranded Cards:
Using unbranded cards instead of branded or company cards makes the note more personal – and better received.
2. Use Blue Ink:
Blue ink means… real, original, authentic – great attributes in today’s business world. And Blue is color chosen most often as FavoriteColor.
3. Use word “You” and avoid words “Me”, “My”, and “I”:
Use the word “you” and avoid words “me”, “my”, and “I”. Remember the note is about them!
4. Be Specific with Your Praise:
Be specific with your praise. Compliment a specific thing they did or acknowledge a particular trait or characteristic.
5. The Power of Positive Projection:
The Power of Positive Projection suggests that by acknowledging traits and characteristics in others that you want to improve, you will improve that trait.
6. Write Rightly:
What it means to write rightly is to write your notes so that there is a gradual upward flow to the lines of your writing. We were taught to write in a straight line straight across, but the most successful, optimistic, and positive people have a natural, gradual upward slope to their writing. People refer to optimists. The way to send the message that you are an optimist and a positive person is to write rightly. *Please see example below and there will be many examples in Learn –> Photos
7. The Plus of the P.S.:
Use a P.S. (postscript) with a powerful call to action to encourage the recipient to respond.
