Over the past two decades, the field of positive psychology has expanded rapidly, and one of the most discussed areas has been gratitude. We know that people who practice gratitude lead healthier lives both physically and emotionally. We also know that gratitude has a positive impact on both the workforce and workplace. Expressing and receiving gratitude at work directly and indirectly contributes to a culture of cooperative, motivated and effective employees who give back and feel supported, appreciated and recognized. The research on workplace gratitude goes deeper than a simple thank you.
This session will also address the dark side of gratitude, and disentangle some of the complexities in order to present a balanced view of the topic. By attending, participants will gain awareness on research-based strategies to improve the well-being of employees and the culture or organizations.
During this one-hour wellness session participants will:
- Better understand how expressing gratitude positively impacts our health and happiness
- Discover the benefits of expressing gratitude and appreciation in the workplace
- Learn strategies to promote gratitude in the workplace
