Solving Healthcare Culture Challenges Through the Power of Gratitude, with Scott Colby, Say It with Gratitude
In this week’s episode, I am joined by Scott Colby, owner of Say It with Gratitude. Scott has embarked on a path as an entrepreneur and speaker after leaving a career at a hospital, during which he never felt appreciated, and never knew his worth.
After an eye-opening experience in Guatemala, during which Scott witnessed firsthand the power of gratitude even in poor living conditions, he launched Say It With Gratitude, which helps companies increase happiness in the workplace by having gratitude as a core value. In addition to delivering his message of gratitude around the world, Scott promotes the power of thank you notes, leads gratitude adventures in the wilderness, and developed The Grateful Deck, a card game consisting of questions that spark meaningful conversations.
In this episode, Scott and I discuss his eye-opening experience 8 years ago, which led him down the path of gratitude; how almost 80% of people leaving organizations are doing so because they feel underappreciated; the unique language of appreciation, and much more.
Tune in to this week’s episode to learn:
- How you can begin implementing gratitude into your everyday life
- The relationship between gratitude and mental illness or burnout
- Where organizations can begin to start changing their culture with gratitude
- The differences between gratitude, appreciation & recognition, and the roles they play
- Why there are so many workplace staffing challenges in healthcare right now
