things that make me feel valued at work  
Here's a thing that's been happening more and more to me at work, that makes me feel appreciated and valued:

People come to me for my opinion about their efforts and/or engagement. Increasingly, people of various organizational proximity come to me for my thoughts on a program before they have it fully fleshed out, or prior to its rollout, looking for critical feedback on potential problems or oversights. And people at various levels of the organization have approached me for personal/interpersonal feedback -- both official and informal -- on how they interact with our mutual colleagues, both looking for tips and tricks, and for productive critique for going forward.

It makes me feel like I'm making a difference, both organizationally and interpersonally, and I really like it.
I'm feeling: chipperchipper

That's great
I'm curious if this is the kind of thing you (or anyone) can be promoted to do more of. What do they call people for whom this is their main job?
