When is the last time you received a heartfelt letter of appreciation? How did it make you feel? Did you save the letter and savor it later? I’m betting you did!
Today Lynette will share three simple steps to help you write and present heartfelt letters to others, so they will feel just as good about their letter as you did writing it!
Lynette M. Smith, freelance copyeditor at All My Best and award-winning author (GoodWaysToWrite.com), wants you to “put it in writing” whenever the magnitude of your gratitude is BIGGER than a thank-you note. Heartfelt letters of appreciation are as rare as gold and at least as valuable to those who receive them—and even to family history.
Some of that “Good Ways to Write” time relates to the comprehensive reference book she recently published. It’s called "How to Write Heartfelt Letters to Treasure: For Special Occasions and Occasions Made Special"

Tune in to The Gist of Freedom, The Black History Internet Radio show with host Shellie Gaines as we welcome Award winning Playwright & Author Gabrielle Pina! Gabrielle will talk to Shellie about her play "Letters From Zora" ~Starring Vanessa Bell Calloway. Letters From Zora is currently running at the crossroadstheatrecompany.org!
“Letters from Zora: In Her Own Words,” for which the meticulous and poetic Gabrielle Denise Pina, a novelist in her own right, collected Zora’s massive correspondence and crafted it into a monologue delivered at New Brunswick’s Crossroads Theatre with wit, sincerity, and majesty by Vanessa Bell Calloway.
Calloway’s feat of memory is stunning enough. In more than 100 minutes, without a chance to pause, let alone to stop for an intermission, the actress never stumbled, missed a cue for transition, or failed to articulate the genius, both as a writer, and as a woman determined to live independently according to her own principles, of Zora Neale Hurston.
Calloway’s performance is enchanting. Besides being fluid and heartfelt, it reminds us, thanks to Pina’s excellent editing and composition, how extraordinary and how pioneering Zora was.
Everything Zora for stood and fervently believed is revealed in Pina’s text, and Calloway magically embodies the grit and strongmindedness of Zora along with her femininity, abundant sense of humor, and disdain for anything false or condescending.
Yes, the words as Pina’s title tells us plainly, are Zora’s, but Pina is the one who had to take a volume of letters and make them into one cohesive, listenable and "entertaining" work."
Filmmaker Kyle Olson visits Movie Addict HQ to discuss Letters to Ashleigh, his moving documentary based on a real-life tragedy involving the murder of teenager Ashleigh Love. This unusual documentary shows how one girl’s death inspired an entire community to make a change. A red-carpet premiere for the movie is scheduled for August 9, and proceeds from this event will be donated to Ashleigh’s family to help them spread the word about Ashleigh’s story in order to bring the perpetrator of this senseless murder to justice. Film critic Mack Bates will co-host this special episode.
During Letters to Ashleigh, family members read letters they received in the days and weeks following Ashleigh’s death – first from close family and friends, and then total strangers from around the country who heard about the story. The film gives audiences a glimpse of a family that was hit with an unimaginable tragedy but still found a way to persevere with their heads held high.
Among Olson’s film and TV credits are the following:
Director of SMHS: 007
Writer/director/producer of Lights, Camera, Camp! and The Robert & Rosie Show
Production staff on Under the Electric Sky, Face/Off, America’s Top Model, Dancing with the Stars
Audience warm-up for The Voice, The X Factor and The Sing-Off
Olson was honored with a Crystal Pillar Award by The National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences, Chicago/Midwest Chapter.
The Discomfort Zone: How Leaders Turn Difficult Conversations Into Breakthroughs is one of my favorite business books in general and near the top of my favorites for books on employee engagement. I reviewed it here.
Her website is OutSmart Your Brain: Mind-Growing Programs for Leaders.
But one book and a great website is just the beginning of Dr. Reynolds contributions to corporate cultures. She's authored Outsmart Your Brain: How to Make Success Feel Easy and Wander Woman How High-Achieving Women Find Contentment and Direction.
Her first expertise, organizational change, developed when facing the challenges of running corporate training departments in the 1980’s and 90’s.
In 1995, looking for a solution to corporate training classes whose lessons were never applied, she enrolled in a coaching school. That's where she saw the power of coaching to make the mental shifts required to sustain change.
She was president of the International Coach Federation in 2000, among the first 25 people to be certified as Master Certified Coach. She's president elect for the Association for Coach Training Organization and Training Director for the Healthcare Coaching Institute.

I am the author of Recognize THEM - 52 Ways to Recognize Your Employees in Ways They Value. It is my first book.
Today's reading is from the second category: Champion.
Defined as a noun, the word Champion means:
a person who has defeated all opponents in a competition or series of competitions. Our success as an organization depends entirely on how well we, as leaders, can remove every obstacle that may hinder the achievement of all of our employees, individually and collectively.
a person who fights for or defends any person or cause. As manager of our highest-performing division she was a champion for all of her direct reports, insuring their achievements were recognized appropriately and that sufficient resources and training was provided them to insure their continued success.
You can listen to my reading of the prior sections of this book:
Acknowledgements and The Wakeup Call
Show Them You Care
I am the author of Recognize THEM - 52 Ways to Recognize Your Employees in Ways They Value. It is my first book.
Author readings bring authors to their prospective audience. Audio books bring the author to their readers. Why not combine the two?
Today I will read from the book's Introduction. For the first episode, I read from the first two parts of my book: Acknowledgements and The Wakeup Call.
Acknowledgement pages in books is like employee recognition by authors for all those who worked to bring their dream, their vision, their 'baby' to life. As managers and leaders, we should follow that habit and start each day recognizing those whose commitment, skills, talents and strengths bring our dreams, our visions, our assignments to fruition. They are the ones who execute the tasks and find the solutions along the way. They do if they are are recognized with appropriate means and resources.
That is what my book is about, recognizing your employees in ways they value.
Today's reading will be the Introduction. I discuss the state of 'employee engagement,' some definition of terms, global research on what happens for companies when they create an engaged culture. It's powerful and positive.
