Gratitude, used in concert with stress reduction practices, provides powerful and proven benefits in the workplace. Stress can inhibit success, effectiveness, productivity, and overall well-being for you and your business.

High stress levels, unhealthy behaviors to manage stress, and

Giving appreciation…what we call Practical Gratitude or Gratitude Practices…is essential to personal as well as professional growth and success.
“When people are thanked for their work, they are more likely to increase
their helping behavior and to provide help to others.”
