Employee engagement doesn’t have to be hard. In fact, one of the simplest ways to start engaging your fellow employees is with gratitude, which is just what we discussed last night at the ever busy, and FUN #TChat with Lisa Ryan and Teresa Andreani. How can being grateful actually drive your organization forward?
While those of us who have been on the receiving end of gratitude in business realized how important it is to thank the people who work with and for you, it seemed that just as many #TChat-ers had suffered at the hands of a nitpicky, downright ungrateful boss or coworker. And you guessed it! The work always suffers.
It sounds like a lot of the responsibility lies with leaders but employees have responsibility too.
#TChatters Agreed That…
- Leaders must show gratitude from the top down.
- Nothing is less expensive than a smile.
- Employees can benefit from showing gratitude too.
- Gratitude is useless when not sincere.
- Gratitude may just be the first step in becoming a better leader.
