WOM1818 - Motivation through Appreciation: Gratitude as an Engagement Tool

Nov 16, 2018 7:30am ‐ Nov 16, 2018 8:20am


Description

Research tells us that people are less likely to express gratitude at work than anywhere else, even though they wanted to be recognized and appreciated more at work. Yet, expressing gratitude at work can have a significant impact on workplace culture and employee wellbeing. From increased job satisfaction, happiness and a sense of community to improved morale, reduced stress, and improved immunity, the impact of gratitude on well-being is far-reaching. Since we spend at least 1/3 of our waking hours at or on work, focusing on gratitude is one of the best things we could do to transform our workplaces.

  • Explain the business case for gratitude and why a culture of appreciation is critical to retention and morale
  • Identify practical ways to foster a culture of appreciation at their workplace
  • Differentiate between the power of bucket fillers vs. bucket dippers
  • Explain the simple formula for fostering trust and connection in relationships AND reflect on their own appreciation language and understand how to communicate it and respond to others’ styles to optimize communication
