Find 50 reasons to be thankful

Roy Clark, executive director of the Centerof Innovation for Education in Grand Rapids, gave one of the keynote addresses at Orgpro, the Michigan Society of Association Executive’s annual conference last month.  This dynamic and moving speaker talked about mentoring, and described seven qualities of a good mentor, although you could really say that they were seven qualities of a good person:





  • Thankful
  • Thoughtful/tactical
  • Teachable
  • Truthful
  • Tenacious
  • Transparent
  • Trustworthy

The one that stuck with me the most was “Thankful,” a quality he used in, of all places, job applications.  If the applicant couldn’t list 50 things for which they were grateful, they didn’t make it to an interview.

Can you list 50 things for which you’re grateful?
