Tips to Encourage Gratitude in the Workplace

Success is much more fulfilling when you are grateful— showing gratitude by thanking all the awesome folks in your life that helped you get were you are personally and professionally. While it is sometimes easier to be thankful in our personal lives, we CAN NOT forget to embody gratitude into our business lives as well. About one-third or 30% of our human life is spent working. The average work week in the United States consists of 38-40 hours of work (at least). That’s an awful lot of time to spend being unhappy or ungrateful.

Here are just a few tips to nurture Gratitude in your business

1. Cultivate the habit of being grateful in your organization. Gratefulness fosters a better quality of life and reduces stress! Make it a habit to start every meeting on a positive note. Appreciate the entire team for their hard work and dedication. Be sure to give credit where credit is due. Also, you can ask staff to share kind thoughts and something to be thankful for every day. Fill your Grateful Box with grateful thoughts and memories you can look back to when grumpiness tries to creep up.


2. Don’t hide your gratitude to the people who work hard and help your company succeed. Recognize their hard work and dedication by saying “Thanks! Great job!” or even a pat on the back can go a long way.  You can also express your gratitude by rewarding them in kind with something such as a gift card to a local coffee shop or offer a surprise bonus of a few extra hours leave. Your gratitude will motivate them to continue to help you grow your business.

3. Be honest & sincere when expressing gratitude. Speak your gratitude wholeheartedly and in person.  Show specific examples or an instance of what the other person did to cause you to be thankful for their actions, words or consideration. Your appreciation will be valued even higher and will inspire others to pay it forward.
