Workshop: Applying The 5 Languages of Appreciation to your Workplace


Unfortunately, many workplaces today are characterized primarily by complaining, sarcasm, and an overall negativity.  This leads to poor morale and increased frustration among employees and managers – and results in higher staff turnover and numerous negative behaviors.  Fortunately, there are practical steps that can be taken to create a more positive work environment.  Learning how to communicate authentic appreciation to colleagues (rather than “go through the motions” employee recognition) can make a huge difference – as attested by our clients (Microsoft, Miller Coors, Million Dollar Round Table, numerous hospitals and over 200 colleges).  This fast-paced, high-energy humorous presentation will encourage you and give you the tools and resources to make a difference in your workplace.

"We collectively decided to invite Dr. White to present to our entire organization. He did a fantastic job of combining his passion with both intellect and humor. He connected well with my team and since his speech, we’ve changed our focus to landing authentic appreciation in a real way across the organization"

Andy Erlandson, General Manager - Microsoft

"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."

Andy Bailey, Employee Recognition, Events, & Corporate Citizenship Manager - DIRECTV

"We previously had an incredibly high turnover rate...But since we started the 5 Languages of Appreciation training with Dr. White, we haven’t lost any team members. The team is happier and more positive, and we actually have hired back employees. The 5 Languages of Appreciation model has had a positive impact within our organization, from the top management down to the line workers.”

Josh Pearce, Human Resource Director
