“One of the core strengths for the Appreciation at Work process is that it is easily implemented.  The resources are adaptable to different settings and roles, being able to be used by front-line employees, supervisors, and managers immediately.  I’ve had managers and supervisors complete the training and that day tell me they were going to change an email they were drafting to send to their team.   Another said they were going to conduct their team meeting differently the next day. The Appreciation at Work resources have helped us transition how we do recognition and appreciation.  We have moved from talking about “rewards and recognition” to “recognition and rewards,” and then to “appreciation and recognition.” Additionally, our 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.”
