Evidence That It Works
Research on gratitude in the workplace links gratitude to more positive emotions, less stress and fewer health complaints, a greater sense that we can achieve our goals, fewer sick days, and higher satisfaction with our jobs and our coworkers.
Why Does It Matter?
How often do the adults in a school say “thank you” to each other? Part of cultivating a positive school climate is becoming more aware of and expressing gratitude to the individuals who contribute to the running of the school, whether or not we interact with them directly. When we do, we ultimately are acknowledging others’ worth and building trust with them.
