Offering positive recognition is a simple but transformative act
And the research agrees.
Studies have shown that feelings of gratitude activate areas of the brain correlated with moral cognition, rewards and positive emotion. For both the receiver and the sharer, benefits can include:
- A happier, more motivated brain.
- A boost in performance, engagement and well-being;
- And a stronger connection to your colleagues.
In other words, the more we engage in it, the more we gain from it.
