“I picked up Dr. White’s book, The 5 Languages of Appreciation in the Workplace, when I was meandering through a Christian bookstore. The title intrigued me as I’d heard of The Five Love Languages that was published much earlier. It was a quick read that I finished on a trip to Europe. The idea of authentic appreciation really hit home with me. Too much of the time, we focus on rewards and recognition only. These can be strong motivators, but they often only apply to a company’s top performers. I asked a group of individuals to read the book from my organization and the content resonated with them as well. 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. Speaking of authentic appreciation… Dr. White, thank you for your inspiration and practical advice!”
“This was the best presentation on employee appreciation I have heard in 35 years. . . Very, very practical.”
“I believe in the message Dr. White and Dr. Chapman communicate. How we care for one another in the community, our workplace, and in our families directly relates to our uniqueness as individuals, apart from our performance. I could very easily apply this to my work with youth, in building them into more confident adults.
The simple message of appreciation builds up community and reinforces the concept that everyone has personal value. His talk reminded me that sharing appreciation with others is one thing we can all do, regardless of our job description.”
“In a business environment where employees are often over-worked and underappreciated, it is important to personally communicate encouragement to our colleagues, superiors, customers and vendors. Dr. White’s 5 Languages of Appreciation in the Workplace presentation addresses this timely issue, with insight and relevance. His style is engaging and effective, teaching us how to impact our workplace and community with genuine encouragement.”
“Dr. White’s material is relevant, particularly to our ever-changing, multi-generational workforce. His appreciation concepts are beneficial to everyone in the workforce, regardless of a person’s level in the company. His information has helped me feel more aware of issues relating to appreciation in my workplace and in society.”
“As a chaplain, I care for staff as well as patients. I am constantly on the lookout for ways to boost staff morale. When I heard about the 5 Languages of Appreciation in the Workplace seminar, I was eager to attend. Dr. Paul White’s message resonated with what I am trying to achieve – and went further. I recommend this program to anyone interested in improving employee loyalty and productivity as they inspire a positive workplace environment.”
“As the Chairman of the American Society of Baking and the one responsible for bringing keynote speakers to the annual event that would deliver quality messages and tools, I knew that Dr. Paul White and his message based on the 5 Love Languages would fit our membership perfectly, and it did. Dr. White brought a practical approach to employee relations and did a great job showing us the difference between recognition and appreciation. His book, the 5 Languages of Appreciation in the Workplace was a hit with attendees, which the majority are from smaller family owned and operated businesses. Dr. White should be invited to speak to any group of leaders who have the responsibility to care for employees and ultimately their families. Thank You Dr. White.”
