Gratitude Strategies for Business and for Life with Lisa Ryan

Join us for an afternoon of networking, roundtable discussions, and a keynote featuring Convening Leaders speaker Lisa Ryan!

The disruption in the meetings industry in 2020 gave us many opportunities to look at our businesses different than ever before. We’ve also been offered many changes to find the good – even in the most difficult of circumstances. Although it sometimes doesn’t feel like it, there were many “gifts” that resulted from the pandemic. The challenge is to look for and find the good.

In this fun and engaging session, you’ll see the difference that having a gratitude strategy – or Grategy – can make for you as a leader. Using research, anecdotes, personal stories, and experiences, Lisa gives you simple tools to create a culture of appreciation in your workplace and in your life. Not only will you be able to keep your best employees from becoming someone else’s, but you will also give yourself the gift of self-care today for a better tomorrow.

You will leave this program with specific ideas that produce dramatic and positive results in your health, wealth, and happiness.

Session Objectives:

  • Experience a daily practice that positively impacts every area of life
  • Explore the health benefits of gratitude
  • Learn gratitude strategies (Grategies) that strengthen your relationships
  • Understand the strategies to create a workplace culture that ROCKS!
