The Lighthouse Effect: Nine Steps to Cultivating Everyday Gratitude


Looking back over the course of our lives, each of us has encountered people who helped us discover our purpose by putting us on the right path and helping us course-correct when needed. Bestselling author, philanthropist, and Workhuman® CHRO Steve Pemberton calls these people “human lighthouses.”

Steadfast, selfless, and unwavering, human lighthouses help others overcome adversity in even the darkest of times. So how do we foster these illuminating qualities in ourselves and our colleagues? Join us on World Gratitude Day, September 21, for a special event lead by Steve and Carmen Ortiz-McGhee, COO of the National Association of Investment Companies.

Over the course of 60 minutes, Steve and Carmen will describe the nine attributes of a human lighthouse and share how to cultivate the lighthouse effect through connected culture, feedback, and recognition at work.

Watch the webinar to:

  • Gain actionable strategies for creating an organizational culture that drives engagement
  • Learn how small, everyday moments of gratitude can be a bridge to inclusion and belonging
  • Reflect on and develop a deeper appreciation for the human lighthouses in your own life
