WOM1818. Motivation through Appreciation: Gratitude as an Engagement Tool

Instructor: Rachel Druckenmiller
Session Track: Experienced Leader
Session Knowledge Level: Basic
Session Field of Study: None
CPE Credits: 1.0

Research tells us that people are less likely to express gratitude at work than anywhere else, even though they wanted to be recognized and appreciated more at work. Yet, expressing gratitude at work can have a significant impact on workplace culture and employee wellbeing. From increased job satisfaction, happiness and a sense of community to improved morale, reduced stress, and improved immunity, the impact of gratitude on well-being is far-reaching. Since we spend at least 1/3 of our waking hours at or on work, focusing on gratitude is one of the best things we could do to transform our workplaces.
Learning Objectives:

  • Explain the business case for gratitude and why a culture of appreciation is critical to retention and morale
  • Identify practical ways to foster a culture of appreciation at their workplace
  • Differentiate between the power of bucket fillers vs. bucket dippers
  • Explain the simple formula for fostering trust and connection in relationships AND reflect on their own appreciation language and understand how to communicate it and respond to others’ styles to optimize communication
