“Our team thoroughly enjoyed Dr. White’s virtual presentation on Building a Positive Workplace through Authentic Appreciation. It was evident Dr. White spent time researching our business and employees to ensure he was able to connect, engage and bring his presentation to life. Dr. White used tools like polls and breakout groups to facilitate questions, dialogue and sharing by the participants. I highly recommend Dr. White to any organization or group who values and desires to enhance its culture through mutual appreciation”

individual online tutorial

Do you need an online course for individuals?

The Appreciation at Work Individual Online Tutorial is designed for individual employees and supervisors to take online at their convenience. This self-paced course includes videos by Dr. White, voiceover instruction with example stories, and short quizzes to confirm understanding. The course includes a code to take the Motivating By Appreciation Inventory and typically takes 90 – 120 minutes to complete (but can be done in sections.) While the course covers all of the essential components and information covered in the Appreciation at Work Implementation Kit, the individual tutorial course is not designed (nor suitable) to be used for group instruction as it does not contain the support resources needed to train groups of employees. The AAW Individual Online Tutorial is an excellent resource for:

  • individual leadership development
  • bringing a new team member who missed a group training “up to speed” on the 5 languages of appreciation
  • an internal HR training program with course offerings
  • use for instruction within the context of a professional development / coaching engagement.
