  • The Neuroscience of Gratitude ~ The Positive Impact on Employee Engagement, Retention, and a
    Healthy Work Environment
    ⇒ Expertise shared with attendees provides a deeper understanding of how the brain views
    the workplace and how leveraging gratitude builds greater inclusion, prosocial behaviors,
    and job satisfaction. Attendees are asked to identify how they will bring this knowledge
    back to their workplace and are presented with recommendations to support this activity.
  • Foundations of Grateful Leadership ~ Building and Broadening its Impact in the Organization
    ⇒ Attendees examine the foundational elements of grateful leadership to help assess their
    own physiological, emotional, and mental well-being and that of their team. They build
    and broaden from there to a strengths-based construct of research in gratitude, positive
    psychology, neuroscience, and positive organizational behavior (POB.) Attendees
    recognize universally intrinsic human needs drive the success of this framework. Finally,
    they create their grateful leadership brand statement to influence organizational culture

Attendees learn to identify reoccurring self-sabotaging thought patterns and how to shift to a different part of the brain, producing positive emotions like curiosity, empathy, gratitude, creativity, calm, and clear-headed focused action, even in the most difficult and challenging times. A free Mental Fitness Assessment is available to all attendees.

“Thank you for your leadership. Please know you are making a difference with this group of nurses! We walk out of the board room recharged, brimming with gratitude and smiles.  As their leader, I am seeing changes in how they approach situations and focus on gratitude.”
Trisha Jungels, MS, BAN, RN 
JRMC Chief Nursing Officer

“The COVID-19 pandemic has left healthcare staff stressed, isolated and uncertain about the future. Add to the losses we’ve suffered the constant need to present ourselves as more “okay” than we really feel. Linda’s program, Gratitude Heals During Times of Isolation and Uncertainty was helpful to our nursing home community which needed that change in perspective to see although we have been through a lot there was a lot to be grateful towards.”
Bryan O. Buckley, DrPH, MPH 
MedStar Institute for Quality and Safety

“In 2020, Linda presented “The Power of Gratitude to Heal Our Hearts, Minds and Bodies”  as a keynote session of a recognition conference for all the nurses in my large healthcare system. Linda creatively and elegantly wove the latest neuroscience on the power of gratitude through a series of powerful examples that was poignantly relative to frontline nurses.  Applying science to gratitude and the impact on our ability to manage constant change and ongoing uncertainty spoke volumes to myself and my colleagues, especially during the very trying times of a pandemic.  As a nurse leader, I continue to reflect on Linda’s presentation and utilize her resources to keep myself grounded in the power of gratitude as I strive to support my team to be their best selves and do their best work during an especially trying time.”
