The Power of Appreciation From Both Managers and Peers

Dr. Paul White is the Co-Author of The 5 Languages of Appreciation in the Workplace and shares lessons learned from the field in this short video.

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).

Dr. White is a psychologist, author, speaker, and consultant who makes relationships work. Dr. White is coauthor of the book, The 5 Languages of Appreciation in the Workplace, written with Dr. Gary Chapman, author of the #1 NY Times best seller, The 5 Love Languages. Dr. White and Dr. Chapman have developed a unique way for organizations to motivate employees that lead to increased job satisfaction, higher employee performance, and enhanced levels of trust.
