Today’s episode is the second in a series of podcasts in which I discuss the five principles of my new book Bring Your Whole Self to Work: How Vulnerability Unlocks Creativity, Connection, and Performance. During this episode, I talk about the power of appreciation and how to take on a mindset of gratitude. I also offer ways individuals, leaders, teams, and organizations can start practicing and utilizing appreciation to create a positive, healthy culture at work. Imagine if we all showed up to work today and made the choice to be grateful for all of it, even the stuff that ruffles our feathers.
The five principles of my new book are #1 Be Authentic, #2 Utilize the Power of Appreciation, #3 Focus on Emotional Intelligence, #4 Embrace the Growth Mindset, and #5 Create a Championship Team.
