This is a "soft" one for today... Some think “gratitude” is just saying thanks for something someone did. But it is so much more than that. Sincere gratitude is deep. It is a choice, rather than just a feeling. Gratitude is a core leadership trait that will have you praising the good in the people you lead; have you encouraging those on your team to complete your mission in excellence. It is expressing to those around you, your intense and personal appreciation for them being part of the extraordinary missions you will accomplish. Leader or follower, we all need to develop an ongoing expression of gratitude. Choosing to focus on the positive, the good and the excellence in our surroundings has proven to benefit our health, relationships, levels of satisfaction, even our sleep! Gratitude will help you bring out the best in yourself and in others. Now that is a winning combination. Be grateful.
