5 Languages of Appreciation in the Workplace

  • NMC University Center, Room 7 2200 Dendrinos Drive Traverse City, MI, 49684 United States (map)

A highly engaged team emerges when each person gives and receives deliberate, individual encouragement. The 5 Languages of Appreciation in the Workplace Training equips managers, supervisors, volunteer coordinators and teams with proven, practical steps to build a positive culture of value and affirmation. If you work with other people in any way, this program is for you!

Participants will:

  • Establish a current appreciation score and set an improvement aspiration score

  • Learn to effectively communicate appreciation to teammates in ways most meaningful to the recipient

  • Gain the necessary skills for practical and immediate application of the 5 Languages

  • Increase understanding of each other’s differences (this training is a strong complement to personality profiles like DISC, Kolbe, Myers Briggs, StrengthsFinder, etc.)

  • Reduce cynicism, sarcasm, and distrust—among co-workers and toward leadership

Results to expect:

  • A more productive and enjoyable work environment for all

  • Improved employee retention due to higher employment satisfaction that results from effective, personal appreciation

  • Savings of time, energy, and expenses through more effective appreciation that reduces attrition

Workshop elements:

  • Each participant completes the Motivating by Appreciation Inventory (an online tool that takes 20 minutes to complete prior to training)

  • Large group learning through brief instructional videos and guided exercises, followed by facilitated small group discussions to explore concepts and share ideas

  • Participant guides provided for use throughout the workshop and for later reference
