Everywhere you look, there is an article about gratitude. Many of them are about why gratitude is so important at work. But you already know this stuff. In fact, you wouldn’t be in a senior leadership role if you didn’t already have an attitude of gratitude. You understand how game-changing it can be to express gratitude and appreciation for others.

The challenge is creating a culture of gratitude, isn’t it?

Business transformation starts with individuals

Empowering employees to play a role in improving the workplace is one of the biggest challenges we face. While you can do a lot to institutionalise change, it’s really the individuals who work in your business day after day who give your culture its tone and style.

Leading workplace cultures and resilience trainer, Gina Brooks, explains that moving into a culture of kindness and gratitude is important, but it isn't without its challenges. 

'Studies have shown us over and over again how focusing on appreciation and gratitude can profoundly shift how people relate to the world,' she explained. 'But if you're a Chief Executive, and you get pushback, you have to know that it's normal and it's ok.'

Not everybody is going to be on board with the idea of a grateful, appreciative, kind workplace.

You might find people on your team who consciously or subconsciously equate gratitude with guilt. You might also find that when people start expressing gratitude to other people, they’re all focused on themselves. Still others may just flat-out rebel: They won’t appreciate thanks, or gifts, or expressions of gratitude at all. Some may even dig themselves into a bunker, and use their positions to try to dismantle the emerging gratefulness round them.

Gina gives you actionable insights into what you can do to create meaningful and cultural transformation, alongside your business change program: Read it here.
