Gratitude: A Powerful Leadership Tool

 

 

 

Do you appreciate the people who make your success possible? With all the challenges of being a leader, it is important to remind yourself that working with your team is a privilege. When you appreciate your team, it creates an environment that celebrates the good and inspires success.  Now is the perfect time to show your gratitude.
Showing authentic gratitude will:
1. Boost Respect

Leaders earn respect when they show their team members appreciation. Leaders who take the time to understand and acknowledge the unique way each person on the team participates, innovates and grows are more focused on recognizing the team’s achievements than their own.  When a leader shows gratitude, they gain respect.

 

2. Build Trust

When you express gratitude for the hard work and contribution of your team, their trust in you and your leadership increases. Your team will trust you for valuing what each person brings to the table. Trust is the foundation for a team’s ability to grow and thrive.

 

 3. Increase Productivity

Research shows that when individuals are thanked for their efforts, they become more productive. The sense of feeling valued can be instrumental for motivating your team to achieve greater success.

 

 4. Develop Resilience

Gratitude has a positive impact on resilience which is defined by emotional regulation and the ability to bounce back from setbacks. When leaders are thankful they become more resilient.

 

 5. Improve Health and Well-being

Gratitude has been credited with lowering blood pressure, improving sleep, reducing depression, and increasing immunity. When leaders show gratitude, they thrive.

Cultivate a culture of gratitude with your team.  Spend some time reflecting what it is about the individuals on your team for which you are grateful and let them know. Gratitude is one of those small things that makes leadership and life better. It is a powerful tool that will inspire your whole team. Gratitude is viral, once it gets started it will keep growing and giving.
