5 Habits Of Genuinely Appreciative Leaders - Fast Company | Everyday Leadership | Scoop.it
Grateful leaders have deep memories and grand ambitions, but they don't undervalue the presenteven if it isn't perfect.
Joe Boutte's insight:

"ENCOURAGE STORYTELLING"

To foster gratitude in your workplace, recount what you've been through together. These narratives are particularly helpful if they illustrate how even in the midst of seemingly dire situations, good things happened. Maybe you turned a major blow-up into an opportunity to build a fresh relationship with a client. Or how a potentially fatal misstep led to an insight or innovation you wouldn't otherwise have come across.

Not only do these stories stir up positive emotions among those who've experienced them, they also create a strong foundation for company culture that can be passed along to new employees over time and expanded as the company grows.

How Angela Merkel's Leadership Style Made Her Time's Person of the Year

How Angela Merkel's Leadership Style Made Her Time's Person of the Year | Everyday Leadership | Scoop.it
Time magazine named Germany's Chancellor Angela Merkel its person of the year Wednesday afternoon.

Merkel, who has served as Germany's chancellor since 2005, earned the honor ahead of a short list of finalists including Donald Trump, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, Uber CEO Travis Kalanick, and Caitlyn Jenner. "Her political style was not to have one; no flair, no flourishes, no charisma, just a survivor's sharp sense of power and a scientist's devotion to data," observed Time in its profile.  

Though the worlds of politics and business are profoundly different, Merkel's leadership traits offer plenty of pointers for entrepreneurs who are fond of learning lessons from the larger stage of global government. Here's a short list of Merkel's standout attributes from Time's writeup:

donhornsby's curator insight, November 25, 2015 8:53 AM

(From the article): This Thanksgiving, don’t express gratitude only when you feel it. Give thanks especially when you don’t feel it. Rebel against the emotional “authenticity” that holds you back from your bliss. As for me, I am taking my own advice and updating my gratitude list. It includes my family, faith, friends and work. But also the dappled complexion of my bread-packed bird. And it includes you, for reading this column.
