Andy Erlandson, General Manager - Microsoft

"Dr. Paul White’s keynote presentation on the 5 Languages of Appreciation in the Workplace, for our SHRM-Atlanta annual HR conference, was right on target. His presentation was engaging, current and relevant.  He combined solid research with actual work-life experiences to show how authentic appreciation positively affects the success and bottom line of an organization.  This was extremely relevant to our SHRM members – helping us to enhance our leadership skills in our member organizations."

Jack W. Bruce, 2016 President SHRM-Atlanta

"Being able to deliver the Appreciation at Work training has given our recognition team credibility, being able to deliver value to our organization. We have moved from the “reward and party people” to subject matter experts who offer practical skills that impact our leaders. In fact, those leaders who embrace authentic appreciation and become champions in implementing it become higher potential leaders."
