As we reflect on 2022 our team at Action Engineering gathered our end-of-year Glows, Grows and Gratitude.
This is an exercise we do as a team at the end of each week. It doesn’t have to be limited to work, however, we find that often times the gratitude prompt is a wonderful way to say thank you to a team member. Rhiannon explains it in THIS SHORT CLIP.
Jennifer Herron, CEO/Founder
Glow: The past few years have been hard on all small businesses. We have worked hard to transform ourselves so we can be transformative guides to our clients.
Grow: Letting go of details to let the Action Engineering and customer teams thrive.
Gratitude: Grateful for Action Engineering employees (Actioneers) who show up every day with intention to present our core values (Emotional Intelligence, Continuous Improvement, Respectful Collaboration, and Trust) to our customers.
Rhiannon Gallagher, Former Chief Business Psychologist
Glow: We have been integrating more psychology and neuroscience into our workshops all year, and it’s making a difference.
Grow: Tuning up my time and file organization skills for next year.
Gratitude: Clients with emotional intelligence, humor, and passion. They made the year fun and rewarding.
Michelle Norwald, Chief Operations Officer
