Creating a culture of appreciation was the culminating session at a recent UC Berkeley ‘Greater Good Science Center‘ event on gratitude and well-being at work.
An exploration of both the ‘how’ and the ‘why’ of gratitude practices, the sessions took an increasingly practical focus as the day progressed:
- What is gratitude, and why practice it at work? (theoretical frameworks & research)
- How to get started: Debunking myths, overcoming barriers (existing programs, in context)
- Putting gratitude into practice (small-scale, practical activities)
- Building cultures of gratitude and appreciation (momentum & long-term organizational change)
Participation in this event was made possible by the Monterey Mindfulness at MIIS Working Group, and we will be sharing the experience through a face-to-face campus event in Monterey and via the Mindfulness at Middlebury site.
