Great Leaders are Grateful Leaders

Leadership is hard. It is magnified when we have a pandemic. Most would agree that we have experienced some of the most difficult times in our history this year – especially for HR and business leaders working with people around the difficulties of COVID-19 to social and economic challenges. However, growth, wisdom, and gratitude can all surface during difficult times and great leaders stand up and stand out during these times because they understand the importance of connecting with people… as well as leaning into gratitude each and every day!

This presentation will include:

1.       Great and Grateful Leaders Stand UP and Stand OUT during a crisis
2.       Great and Grateful Leaders Focus on Connecting!
3.       Great and Grateful Leaders Look for the Good!
4.       Great and Grateful Leaders Live in Gratitude!

This session will inspire you to lean into the gratitude when leading your team, as well as leading yourself. You will learn some of the common threads to great and grateful leadership during times of crisis and how we can help others lean into gratitude to make the most of every day!
