But before we get to the interview

I want to ask:

Do you realize that we are coming to the third anniversary of

the founding of the Center for Grateful Leadership?


On June 14, 2016 Judy Umlas founded the Center for Grateful leadership.

It can be found at www.gratefulleadership.com

Here is what it says right on the Center for Grateful leadership’s front page:

Collaborate globally with other Grateful Leaders, and those who want to become such leaders, to create a future filled with gratitude and appreciation!

Tap into the power of personal commitment and dedication by acknowledging people in an authentic, heartfelt manner.

Inspire your team and bring out the best in your people by dramatically increasing levels of engagement, productivity, and willingness to take initiative.


Since its founding, the Center for Grateful Leadership has grown to almost 1,000 members

We have monthly webinars with guest speakers
