Jacqueline commented on Gratitude for newbies

Hello Vikram, thanks for your question. We envision that the toolkit will be something an individual employee and/or manger will refer to when wanting to introduce some positive change in their work culture. It is less about this person "rolling out the toolkit" to the entire org, and more about the individuals taking some of the ideas and modelling the behaviours. Modelling expressions of gratitude will hopefully inspire others to also give it a try. Our toolkit will encourage those who are early adopters to become gratitude ambassadors within their organization and will provide tips, methods, workshop ideas for how to spread the word and get others on board. We want to stay away from a top down "though shall use the toolkit" to a more organic diffusion of gratitude thinking and practice within an organization.

The Toolkit is for individuals and organizations new or skeptical about practicing gratitude at work. They may of heard of the concept of gratitude, but have never considered it as an appropriate work practice. They are not likely to seek information on gratitude, per se, but instead may search for topics like “boosting employee morale” or “how to work better as a team”.

The concept of gratitude will be introduced in an easy-to-access manner staying clear of complex knowledge and ideas with low effort suggestions to start with to provide an onramp to quick wins.
