When you get your salary increment or promotion do you thank your supervisor for it? Or by the time you have asked/threatened/negotiated the feel-good has already disappeared?  It’s rare to get a good raise or a dream promotion without having to fight for it. Yes, in our long career there are those unique moments of when we get recognized unexpectedly. I reckon its also difficult to be a consistent performer that you can expect magical raises and promotions frequently. But, when you do get that ‘raise’ even if its single digit do you ‘offer’ that thank you? I never did, I felt everybody is doing their job including our boss who would have signed on that growth. I felt entitled everytime I got a raise or a promotion. Maybe, also felt awkward thanking for something that I worked hard for and felt deserved. Yes, some of them were negotiated so I did not have the ‘face’ to thank them when they eventually came.  Come to think of it, every increment or promotion has the ‘discretion’ of the bosses, sometimes super boss and HR? Maybe, it’s worthwhile to note that discretion and thank them for taking that extra step?  I am sure you were and are better than I used to be 🙂
