The Art of Appreciation
Appreciation (showing one’s gratitude) is one of our most important needs. To feel appreciated for the things you do and to appreciate the work you perform, is essential for a thriving workplace. Learning to
appreciate oneself as well as others, helps in accepting criticism and feedback openly.
One of the key reasons why employees leave, is because they don’t feel appreciated, often by their manager. Once this quality becomes embedded in the DNA of a team and its leaders, there is no cost to paying it forward.
Appreciation is one of our most universally important needs. To feel appreciated for who you are as an individual and recognized for the work you perform, is essential for a thriving workplace. Learning to appreciate oneself as well as others, helps in accepting criticism and feedback openly.
“We say ‘thank you’ to acknowledge the good things we get from other people, especially when they give out of the goodness of their hearts. We say ‘thanks’ at home and in school, in stores and at church. But not at work. According to a survey of 2,000 Americans […] by the John Templeton Foundation, people are less likely to feel or express gratitude at work than anyplace else. And they’re not thankful for their current jobs, ranking them dead last in a list of things they’re grateful for.” Greater Good Science Center at UC Berkeley
