I was back in the area where I grew up over the week-end, not too far from Ohope beach (see pic). As I walked along the beach I thought about how grateful I am to have grown up in New Zealand. And so grateful to be in New Zealand now, as the world we live in is so uncertain and changing.

There is plenty of empirical evidence that focusing on gratitude improves mental health, wellbeing and optimism and reduces anxiety, stress and depression. If you are not already doing it, take some time very day to focus on things you are grateful for.

I was working with a team recently on how their individual personal values are important at work. Values influence the way we interact with each other, the decisions we make, how we behave when under stress or pressure, and how we deal with change. Differences in values at work can also be the source of tension or conflict. Many academics and authors also talk about values providing meaning in the workplace, managers living their values having great credibility and leaders finding their true north. There certainly is a lot to gain from a team having an open conversation about personal values. If I can help you with this, please get in touch.
