Leading with Gratitude

In this keynote speakers Chester and Adrian are introducing groups to their new research that shows how gratitude, done right, can boost employee engagement and reduce turnover- they also show how few leaders effectively utilize this simple tool.

Key take-aways:

  • How gratitude for employees’ efforts- when the acknowledgment is authentic, specific and timely- can be a huge motivation and productivity booster, especially during times of change
  • Why there is a management gap between knowing that gratitude works and the failure of so many leaders to actually practice it… or do it well ( the myths that are holding leaders back)
  • How leaders can master this critical skill to enhance their team performance and trust, and develop their personal leadership credibility (the 8 most powerful gratitude practices).
