A Grateful Culture Is A Healthy Culture. Here’s How To Create It.

Studies have shown a direct link between happy people and their ability to feel and acknowledge gratitude. This is true in both our personal and professional lives. How happy are the people you work with? How happy are you? In his article, "A Grateful Culture is a Healthy Culture. Here's How to Create it," John Hall writes about why and how to create a more appreciative company culture. One of Hall's recommendations is to really get to know your team: "Authentic relationships are non-negotiable parts of a grateful culture," he writes. When we value people for who they are—and not on the basis of what they do for you—then we've reached a different level of appreciation.

Just by making time to consider what you’re your grateful for, you’ve stimulated your hypothalamus which regulates a lot and affects empathy, social cognition and emotional experiences. It’s difficult to encourage gratitude in your team if you’re not experiencing it yourself. And yes—they’ll know. Read Hall’s entire article for three other ways to create or increase a culture of gratitude.
