If you want to stay humble without having to be humbled, try being grateful. Feeling grateful helps you see the good in the world, expressing gratitude transforms relationships, and living gratefully makes all of your experiences more abundant.
This document contains stories of people being grateful and of failing to be grateful. (The titles next to people’s names are their titles at the time the story occurred and may not be their title currently.) Discussing diverse situations in which people failed or succeeded to live up to their values often helps people to recognize and act on other opportunities when they arise. By discussing these stories in meetings, on teams, over internet or intranet forums, or in classrooms, groups can come up with ideas for leading with exceptional gratitude, learn each other’s perspectives, work through disagreements, and generate ideas. The teaching note is included.Instruction Manual for Leading with Gratitude in Remote Teams
