Good day and welcome to the leading with nice daily. My name is Matthew Yuill, this week we’re looking at leadership and gratitude. Today we’re going to look at a few ways you can increase your capacity, your ability to be a leader full of gratitude. And the first one should sound so easy, but it’s, it’s this, it’s be authentic. You know, they actually did a study here. There’s many studies on this, but one that I love is they actually had babies like, um, who could give responses. So babies through just before toddler, toddlers, and they would have people who were like authentically loving on the babies and those who faked it and the babies responded positively to those who were authentic. We can tell from childbirth where we’re hardwired to know authenticity. So be authentic in your authenticity. The second is this, celebrate wins both big and small.

You don’t have to measure your gratitude only for big wins. You know it, you can be just as excited for somebody for those big and small wins. And the next two go hand in hand, one schedule time every day to reflect with gratitude. So by that, what I like to do is I make a list and I’ll have somebody’s name and I write down the things that I’m thankful for them, thankful for, for that person, and I just reflect on it daily. It just makes it so much more easy to be authentic because the more of that information I put in my brain, the more I remember it. So the second part of that is compliment your team daily. Let them know that you appreciate them. You know, when I worked in education and I had a lot of students in my office, I would say to them, Hey, I’m really glad you came in today because they were students and I was really glad they came in that day. Uh, and it’s okay to thank them for things, things you might think should be no brainers. So those are just a few tips, a few ways to increase your capacity and how to do it for more on this topic, visit leading with nice.com where we want to help you inspire others, build loyalty and get results.
