Winner’s Best Practice

Gratitude, Joy, and Integrity are not the first words to be mentioned in Leadership books and are usually left outside the office's front door. Yet, acknowledging Gratitude for what you have at work and expressing appreciation to teammates creates safety and security. Acting with Integrity by consistently doing as you say and for it to be aligned with what you think is a powerful action to build trust and transparency. Creating Joy by smiling more, laughing more, and joking more builds a deeper connection with your team. When I act upon these values through my leadership practices, negativity simply can not coexist.
