Episode 35: See the Good - Lisa Ryan

URL: http://www.julieannsullivan.com/see-the-good-lisa-ryan/

 

On this episode of Mere Mortals Unite, we interview Lisa Ryan, who has discovered a way to find something good in every situation through her practice of gratitude. Lisa has used this as a basis to teach organizations that with a change in vocabulary and practice, a workforce environment can transform into a place where people want to be productive and engaged. Lisa will explain to you the practice of creating five “thank you’s” each day. It doesn’t take a lot of time, but the rewards are worth every moment of effort. She’ll even touch on the importance of how we receive a compliment, a part of the process you might not have considered. Come join us on this episode and see how you too can find an opportunity lurking almost everywhere.    

You’ll discover:

 

  • How Lisa describes her superpower.
  • Why being let go from her job was the beginning of a transformation for Lisa.
  • A compelling story of how Lisa helped employees in a sewer district be more productive and appreciative to one another.
  • How leaders can use the “apology approach” to foster more gratitude in their organizations.

 

Five ways to create “thank you’s” every day:

 

  1. Keep a gratitude journal.
  2. Send a thank you note in response to something specific.
  3. Write a letter of appreciation to someone telling them how you feel about them and the difference they have made.
  4. Verbally thank people.
  5. Meditate by focusing on the good things in your life.
