In a study done by the American Psychological Association it was found that over half of employees who left employers did so due to lack of feeling appreciated.😳
I imagine a level of disengagement was also present prior to making the decision to leave.😔
Leaders – you are not being honest with yourselves if you think the reason given was 100% honest. Rare is the breed that will speak honestly due to fear of burning bridges or simply not having established trust. Another topic for another day…
Adversely, showing gratitude is scientifically proven to:
✅Improve workplace relationships
✅Increase engagement & retention
✅Better coping skills – increases mind muscle.
✅Literally makes you happy by rewiring your 🧠
✅Reduces toxic emotions like envy.
✅Increase levels of oxytocin!🤯💃
Is this not enough to put an attitude of gratitude into practice?
🎯I want to challenge you to make #gratitude a *permanent* core practice in your personal & work life. I use the words “permanent” and “core practice” for a deliberate reason. As we approach the year end mark & New Year, we love to make such important things like this a “resolution”. Well… we all know the statistics on a resolution. What is your plan to make it stretch far beyond a temporary resolve?
➡️ How do you show appreciation?
➡️How are you eliminating distractions, cutting out the self talk – and focused on even looking for an opportunity to be grateful?
➡️ Can you think of three things that make you feel grateful? The laugh of a child, the smile of a grandparent (past or present). The touch of a loved one.
➡️How else can you and do you practice gratitude?
➡️Need help devising a plan to implement this in your life home or work? Contact me today.
