Bounce Back on CKPG News


All of us need to feel appreciated every now and again. Why not tell your colleagues all the great things they are doing? Below is a WOW! Notebook that was created to boost morale and give each other a pat on the back.

When a staff member receives the notebook, they read the wonderful message that someone wrote for them. They, in turn, write a note to another staff member to encourage, give a boost, or to just say how much they are appreciated. At the bottom of the page they write, "Don't forget to pass it on....."

How awesome is it to receive an unexpected kind note?! Now go out there and spread the love! http://hanselorthecounselor.blogspot.ca/2013/03/wow.html?m=1

Create a wall of gratitude

How to take this break

Put up a message board where people can add a note about what they are grateful for with respect to a direct report or co-worker.

Why this counts - Calming

People who take time every day to think about the things they are grateful for may be generally happier overall.
