I’m predicting that 2020 will be the year that successful organizations and professionals see gratitude as a cultural focus.
There is gratitude consistently next to connection in happiness studies, but it also shows up in studies of business success.
It wouldn’t surprise me if it impacted health and longevity directly, too, and was entirely at the intersection with the connection.
Gratitude with customers, clients, and the network is a way to have better (more fruitful) days selfishly. The irony of how self-serving the act is can’t be lost on many, right?
Amplify isn’t alone in starting most meetings with gratitude. Some of our leaders kick off with business and personal wins. Some start with a good news segue. The strategy links in gratitude and starts meetings off with optimism and great energy!
There’s a saying, “If you look at what you have in life, you’ll always have more. If you look at what you don’t have in life, you’ll never have enough.”
In business, there’s an opportunity to focus on working and being grateful and acknowledging it. This gives you the energy and momentum to accomplish more and to leverage core strengths.
More effort on strategy and growth results in more strategic development.
