February Virtual Chapter Event - Goodbye Complacency and Entitlement - Hello Engagement


There is a barrier that keeps far too many people stuck struggling to lead a thriving, happy, meaningful life—which bubbles over into the workplace and stymies us from being our best and leads to feelings of entitlement, complacency, and being overwhelmed. In this session, you’ll learn how and why Grateful Leadership will prevent this and help you improve and strengthen your project team, be a better project manager and develop new leadership skills. To put the ideas into action, you’ll learn 10 practical ways to build a more engaged project team using Grateful Leadership.

We’ll cover how and why Grateful Leadership will help you:

  • improve and strengthen your project team
  • be a better project manager
  • develop new leadership skills

Join Steve Foran, as he presents “Goodbye Complacency and Entitlement - Hello Engagement”.


My dream is one billion happier people. While not the typical career path of an Electrical Engineer, I began exploring the relationship between gratitude and philanthropic giving during my MBA—receiving the Gold Medal for highest academic standing. Since then, I’ve been writing and conducting practice-based gratitude research and teaching the habits of gratefulness—close to fifteen years now. What has emerged is our science-based program, Gratitude At Work. It's a simple, yet innovative approach to thriving leadership and business growth. I founded Gratitude at Work in 2007 and started hosting conversations in my community which has since grown into work with leaders around the world, shifting cultures, helping leaders and their teams be happier at work by bringing more gratitude to work each day.

My 2019 book, Surviving to Thriving - The 10 Laws of Grateful Leadership, was named 1 of 8 recommended reads by Greater Good Science Center at the University of California Berkeley and 1 of 5 positive psychology books for a happier 2019 in inc. Also in 2019, I was an inaugural winner of Canada's CEO Trusted Advisor Awards Program and in 2017, I was awarded the highest earned designation in professional speaking, CSPTM. I’m a son, brother, husband, father, and relatively newly minted grandfather. My kids poke fun at my gratitude work (air quotes) as we are heading to one billion with an online community that gives everyone easy access to the secrets of gratitude and grateful leadership. I’m a lifelong resident of Halifax, Nova Scotia, and trying to do my part to make my community a better place to live.
