How Gratitude will Make You a Better Leader
Living with gratitude isn’t easy. Being a leader who lives with gratitude is even more difficult. Sometimes, we’re angry or upset because of a personal crisis or an employee’s bad decision. And when we’re in that negative place, we can’t be grateful. In order to be at our best as leaders, living in gratitude is essential. Why is that? Coming from a place of appreciation inspires your people to perform well. It’s difficult to empower your teams if you don’t do so in the spirit of gratitude.
While we all have our negative moments and find ourselves ungrateful, understanding how to place ourselves back in the center of gratitude is paramount for great leaders. With this in mind, I’ve used Empowered Wealth’s 4 Levels of Gratitude* as a model and a tool to get back into gratitude.
When you come from a place of respect, appreciation, and generosity, you will become a more authentic and transparent leader. The key is to intentionally navigate to the mindset of gratitude.
