GRATITUDE AND BUSINESS

The Plymouth Colony and the Business Case for Gratitude WSJ

A simple concept many managers across the spectrum forget or completely ignore. Showing appreciation for workers and what they contribute to your team is vital for retention and productivity.

Too many managers hold outdated leadership philosophies of yesteryear, which plague their teams with high turnaround. Some managers focus on negative reinforcement to drive metrics, ignoring underlying issues.

Being able to inspire workers, align them with organizational objectives, and foster their ingenuity and innovation into process improvements can help productivity more than cracking the whip.

A title does not make you a leader. Being bossy is not a sign of leadership. Look for those that inspire, influence, and motivate, then you will find your leaders.
