How might I change the ways in which I show gratitude in order to enhance the confidence of my coworkers? I would like to solve this problem because I know how great it feels to receive feedback from my supervisors about the work that I have done. It really gives me confidence that I need to know that I am able to continue doing great work moving forward. Coming up with ways that I can work on showing gratitude that helps others feel confident to will allow for a better working environment for everyone.

This idea will help inspire the experience and expression of gratitude within an organization in a couple of way.

Who are you innovating for?

The individuals that will benefit from this idea are the people that I work with. Because of my idea, this might inspire them to do the same in their other workplaces. It could set off a domino effect, so essentially my idea could benefit everyone; however, it will directly impact the individuals who I work with.
