Episode 22: Showing Gratitude at Work Can (And Should) Be Simple

Which team culture do you think is more productive: one that regularly includes positive affirmation and genuine expression of gratefulness, or one that includes minimal feedback and more tasks being given out than moments of gratitude? It’s probably a no-brainer.
