We are excited to share with you our 3rd season of Working Gratitude starting in March 2020. “Working Gratitude” launched in 2012 to stimulate dialogue and conversation about research based best practices of gratitude in the workplace and ways that gratefulness is expressed via philanthropy. These brief interviews with successful leaders from a variety of professional environments will encourage and inspire you and give you ideas about how you can start “Working Gratitude.”
Working Gratitude with Kerry Wekelo
"Start with gratitude." And, "Infuse with gratitude to defuse."
In this third episode of season 3 of Working Gratitude, we speak with Kerry Wekelo, COO, Actualize Consulting. Recorded in the early weeks of the coronavirus pandemic, we address gratitude during crisis and conflict. We discuss starting difficult conversations with gratitude and appreciation. Kerry is also the author of "Culture Infusion: 9 Principles to Create and Maintain a Thriving Organizational Culture" and soon to be released "Gratitude Infusion." We discuss using gratitude to "infuse and defuse."
Her book and program resulted in Actualize Consulting being named a Top Company Culture by Entrepreneur Magazine, Top Work Place by The Washington Post, and a Great Place to Work. Her educational background includes a double major in Finance/Marketing and an MBA in Information Technology. Kerry has been featured on ABC, NBC, NPR, The New York Times, Thrive Global, SHRM, Inc., and National Mortgage Magazine.

Working Gratitude with Mike Robbins
Author/speaker Mike Robbins has a new book coming out later in April 2020. Who could have known when he completed the book in August 2019 with a publishing date of late Spring 2020 that we would be saying and be hyper aware of the idea that "We Are All In This Together". Mike is a fellow podcaster too with "We Are All In This Together" and among is previous four books, two of my favorites are "Bring Your Whole Self to Work" and "Focus on the Good Stuff." In this episode, recorded on March 30, early in the COVID-19 pandemic we discuss the threads of continuity that run through all of Mike's writing, speaking, coaching and podcasts. Mike is a sincere and authentic human who brings every intention and possibility for authenticity, vulnerability, kindness and compassion.

Thoughtful conversations across a solid spectrum of speakers. It’s wonderful to hear how gratitude plays a role in the lives of so many well-respected individuals who are also respected in their professions.
Excellent podcast. These are the things that we all need reminding of as often as possible. We get too busy, sometimes, to stop and be grateful...grateful for work, family, life, whatever it may be. Darin does a great job in leading the conversations with all types of professionals towards seeing the importance of gratitude in our daily lives.
Excellent podcast. Great guests. Insightful messages.
I am a new listener to the podcast, but am beyond impressed with the quality of content that Darin incorporates in each episode. There hasn’t been an episode that I’ve listened yet where I haven’t been able to pull out multiple insightful pieces of information.
Work is such a huge part of our lives, so leveraging the tools of gratitude in the workplace can have an incredible impact on us and those with which we work.
Keep up the great work!!!
