RESOURCES TO SPUR YOUR IDEAS
Greater Good Science Center has produced a variety of resources explaining cutting-edge research on gratitude and how it can be applied to the real world, including the workplace.
We invite you to submit Ideas that radically build upon these principles, and go well beyond them, proposing entirely new ways of thinking about and practicing gratitude, drawing on your own experiences and observations.
