Furthermore, showing gratitude in the workplace also has many benefits. Studies show that something as simple as saying “thank you” to employees motivates them to be more productive.
Here are some ways to help develop a culture of gratitude in the workplace:
·Say “thank you” to leaders, coworkers and staff acknowledging something you typically don’t comment on.Maybe it’s thanking them for the way they are organized at meetings, or maybe because they restocked the snack bar, or even just help keep the office tidy.
·Find simple and creative ways to show gratitude to clients. Most people communicate via some form of technology – so mailing a client a handwritten note can really make a lasting impression.
·Encourage peer gratitude. Consider sending out a monthly “shout-out” email with acknowledgments from the team to help develop a culture of gratitude.
·Be mindful.Taking a moment to take a deep breath and just being thankful for the moment or the “small things” can foster a mindset of gratitude for all things.
·Turn failures into opportunities of gratitude.During challenging moments, instead of saying “I should have…”, tell yourself “I’m happy I learned…”. Seeing failures as opportunities of gratitude can help build resilience.
