Gratitude attitude

I believe that gratitude (focusing on what’s gone well in a day) is one of the most powerful states of mind we could be in, because, when we’re in this state, it doesn’t leave much room for negativity or fear. So as leaders, if we can identify the hows of providing an environment where gratitude can take place, I believe we’re sure to lead others through challenges more effectively.

Here’s a start: Identify one deliverable or quality that someone on your team has delivered or demonstrated. Ask yourself if you feel grateful for this person’s contributions. And if you do, offer specific praise to the individual who is responsible for that quality or deliverable, and say thank you.
