Celebrating Business Success with Gratitude

Posted on Saturday, July 18, 2015

I met recently with a past employee (from my former corporate life) and she pointed out that I seemed so happy, actually joyful.  I thought about her comment which reconfirmed how grateful I am to be doing the work I love, as I celebrate my fifth business anniversary this month.   I  wake up every day with excited anticipation about who I will be meeting with, and what simple shift or new approach we might discover.

These past five years have far exceeded my expectations in every way, including the volume of work that has come my way through satisfied client referrals.

With a wide range of clients over the past several years, I have fine-tuned my process of Discover. Progress. Achieve – to include new packages, new tools, new assessments and new exercises all designed to meet the diverse needs of leaders and teams.  

Recent clients include physicians, surgeons and administrators in health care, CEO's and senior leaders in insurance, commercial development, home building, non-profit organizations, technology and leaders in food and agribusiness and manufacturing.  The work we have done together has proven to be an effective solution for them in a variety of ways:

  • Create smooth transitions into new roles
  • Identify and eliminate leader 'blind spots'
  • Develop stronger emotional intelligence 
  • Lead business change with greater ease 
  • Make simple shifts to achieve positive results

I’m delighted to continue my work to help leaders think through problems, and create clarity within complex situations to achieve great results, and ever grateful for all I continue to learn from them.

Gratitude Inspiration

In keeping with this post's topic of gratitude, here's a wonderful idea a client shared with me that you might want to try.

This leader credits his continued success with the 15-minute daily routine (identifying one or two actions toward his bigger goals) to reduce stress and create focus.  He takes this exercise to another level by writing down one to three things that he is grateful for and one positive experience he has had in the past twenty-four hours.

He told me this is the best small change he has made to help him to feel productive, manage daily work stressors and get energized to help the people around him to achieve their goals too.
