Feed The Appreciation Machine

“Trade your expectations for appreciation and the world changes instantly.” ~Tony Robbins

William James, the esteemed psychologist, said, “the deepest principle in human nature is the craving to be appreciated.”

Remember the last time somebody appreciated you for something you did or said? Or simply for being you? Felt pretty good, didn’t it?

Well, that feeling of being appreciated can be generated without waiting for others to initiate it.

Try this: Appreciate every one and thing that crosses your path today: the traffic slowing you down, the obstacles in your way, the people impeding your progress.

All of it.

For one day.

See if you don’t feel pretty damn good at the end of the day.

And then, repeat.

What do you have to lose by trying it?

Might make for a mighty fine week.

Helping businesses build their people

If your people have the skills to communicate more effectively, they can connect more authentically and thus collaborate more productively. Not only on the job, but also in life.

Communication, Connection, and Collaboration—the three “C’s”—are the cornerstones of all successful businesses.

Experiential learning through interactive workshops and coaching combines these three essential components with real-world application. By heightening self-awareness, enhancing emotional intelligence (EQ), and reinforcing accountability people become better communicators and self-managers.

I’ve been driving new kinds of conversations my entire career. Clear, confident, congruent conversations that generate change. The kind of conversations that create real collaboration. The kind that build your business—and your character.
