Gifts that are given between teammates are important indicators of how close a team is. New team members can be welcomed into a dynamic with a gift during the Christmas season. This communicates acceptance and genuine goodwill. Thoughtful gifts demonstrate how much we actually know our teammates. There is always a deep sense of needing to be known and a gift is a great opportunity to meet that need. It’s not the price of the gift or the size. It’s the thoughtful consideration of someone’s favorite things. Do you know your teammates favorite things or what would communicate that you know them well? That gift you choose can leave an impact on the team dynamic for the rest of the year.
