Throughout the year at Marsh & McLennan Agency, we hold core value training for our associates.  In these sessions, we talk about our values and explore how those values impact our work and personal lives.

I enjoy each one of these trainings, but I especially like discussing our core value attitude. When the group is sharing about how to foster a positive attitude, the importance of approaching life with a spirit of gratitude always comes up in our discussion. It’s no accident that attitude and gratitude rhyme. They go hand-in-hand.
