Wellness in the Workplace: An Exercise in Gratitude

We all know that Thanksgiving brings out the thankfulness in us. Perhaps we should be better at practicing that year-round, don’t you think?  Let’s take advantage of the season and the positive karma of our colleagues by practicing it together.

This session will present the fundamentals of happiness and positive psychology as they apply in the workplace. We will engage in an exercise to identify your own practices for “Happiness Habits,” and subsequently by writing a Letter of Gratitude to someone we would like to acknowledge.

This will be a hands-on exercise and experience in Gratitude!



Katie K Snapp

Founder, Better-Leadership.com


During her first career as an engineer at Honeywell, Katie Snapp was selected to participate in their corporate change and became one of the nation’s top trainers in leadership and teambuilding. She left there to become a consultant at The Cumberland Group, a game-changer in the quality revolution, and worked with clients such as: General Dynamics, Commonwealth Edison, Northrop Grumman, the US Navy, and US Air Force. Having worked as a rocket scientist in a male-dominated culture made her realize that women have great value that often gets buried because of their belief systems, feeling outnumbered, and lack of positive female role models. So she wrote a book called Skirt Strategies that gives women 249 success secrets to empower them towards leadership. She now speaks internationally to give women the encouragement and techniques they need to achieve as leaders, as well as to help men understand the importance of a gender-balanced workplace.


The second edition of Skirt Strategies: 249 Success Tips for Women in Leadership was released with co-author Carol Wight. Her book is a collection of clear fundamentals for leading others with simple femininity. Her business is named after the same book, Skirt Strategies, and she also has a series of online training courses for women in leadership.


Katie holds a Bachelor's Degree in Electrical Engineering, is a Six Sigma Green Belt, Licensed and Specialty-Certified in New Life Story Coaches Training in the psychology and neuroscience of leadership, and a former Senior Examiner for the state-level Malcolm-Baldrige award at Quality New Mexico. Ms. Snapp also teaches management courses at the Anderson School of Management at the University of New Mexico and serves on several local boards.
