Thanks for that encouraging word... to somebody.
Perhaps said leader might be named? While not publicly naming names on
the negative side is arguably a good thing, isn't publicly crediting
people by name for positives like this, when the opportunity arises, part
of the solution, not the problem?
(Unless there's a specific reason not to, in this case. A simple "Thanks
to that unnamed person" statement would then indicate that the name was
deliberately withheld, while keeping it positive. IMO, of course.)
