Want to inject more (effective) gratitude into your workplace? Let's chat. 

Crystalee Beck shared new research on gratitude and had an entire room wide-eyed for more. Managers often don’t take the time, aren’t comfortable giving praise, or worse, don’t see the value of employee recognition ... Her research will have you convinced that recognition done right can make a difference.

My research helps people feel more appreciated at work. 

Did you know you can do gratitude "wrong"?

"Thank you" really matters in the workplace. I researched gratitude in the workplace as the topic of my master's thesis, which was published in an international journal. 

I teach, speak about, and publish my research to help people and teams improve their relationships, experiences they have together, and ultimately their results.
