In the spirit of Thanksgiving I would like to share a short list of just a few of the things I am grateful for:

  • Enthusiastic readers who help spread the word about creating a positive work environment! I am blessed with some of the most supportive readers in the world.
  • The exceptional companies, leaders, and managers who provide role models that I can point to.
  • The success stories that my clients and readers share with me. Your successes energize me.
  • Berrett-Koehler, publisher extraordinaire, a one-of-a-kind organization that I am oh, so lucky to be part of.
  • The people in my life who keep me in line (you know who you are)! These folks say what I need to hear, in a way that lets me hear it.
  • Friends, family, and colleagues who give of themselves, without expecting anything in return. My hope is that I continue to pay forward your generosity.
  • My improv friends who have taught me tons about laughing, taking risks, and failing with grace!

Like I said, a short list. It could be much, much longer. There are many that deserve my gratitude.

But now it’s your turn. As Thanksgiving approaches, what are you grateful for?
