The Importance of Being Grateful When Collaborating with Others

A high-maintenance person, explains bestselling author, TEDx Speaker, and special advisor Dr. Mark Goulston, is difficult to please and easy to upset. When you’re very successful, you may be able to get away with acting like this when collaborating with others, but he doesn’t recommend it. Instead, be low-maintenance: appreciative, patient, and aware of the fact that everyone is doing the best they can. Very few people feel that the world is grateful to them or enjoys them, so Dr. Goulston makes a point to show his gratefulness when working with and receiving help from others.
