Leaderly Quote: It’s November. Get Thanky!

Happy November! According to Harvard Health Publications, researchers in the field of positive psychology have found that cultivating an attitude of gratitude is strongly associated with greater happiness.

Want to be happy? Give thanks! Or as Chloe Pink likes to say, “Get Thanky!”

“It’s #GetThanky month. Time to think about
what makes you #GetThanky.”
— Chloe Pink

So head on over to Chloe Pink’s Facebook page and share what you’re thankful for. Include “#getthanky” for a chance to win a Chloe Pink Thanksgiving Treat Pack at the end of November!

There are many ways that expressing your gratitude at work makes you a stronger leader, too. Here are three of those benefits:

1) Gratitude increases job satisfaction

 Lea Waters at Melbourne Graduate School of Education found that employees who are part of a workplace culture that promotes gratitude benefit from greater job satisfaction and overall wellbeing.

2) Gratitude is contagious

Waters also notes that one person’s expressions of gratitude can be contagious, and “… the expression of gratitude is amplified across an organization and reciprocally expanded, which has the potential to positively influence job satisfaction of all employees.”

Express your gratitude to someone, and you might just set a ripple effect in motion.

3) Gratitude is good for business

 In a study titled “Make Recognition Count“, Bersin by Deloitte found that companies with well-established employee recognition programs are 12 times more likely to have strong business results. But surprisingly, only 20% of organizations take full advantage of this benefit.

So recognize someone today for doing great work! And consider taking things a step further, by finding ways to embed regular recognition practices in your team’s culture. For example, start meetings by acknowledging team mates’ accomplishments.
