Training For Your Team

The MBA Inventory Test

We have found that teams of workers and organizations are most impacted by the 5 Languages of Appreciation model when they have a structured process to help them apply the concepts over time. To help individuals within businesses and organizations, Dr. White has developed a series of resources and processes to facilitate the implementation process.

Self-Led Training Products

We have developed a series of tools that can be used within an organization to take your teams through a practical, step-by-step process to apply the languages of appreciation within your workplace.

Because financial resources are tight for many organizations, we have created a basic package of self-led training tools at an affordable price. These resources have been shown to dramatically improve workplace communication and employees’ attitudes.

  • Four video training sessions (general overview by Dr. Chapman; four introductory videos by Dr. White)
  • Participants booklets
  • Facilitator’s guidebook with:
    • Discussion Questions
    • In-session training activities
    • Between-session training activities
  • Handouts:
    • Action Plan Outline
    • Action Items for Co-workers Template
    • Tracking Actions Spreadsheet
  • Compilation of Weekly Instructional Emails to Send to Participants

Here are some examples from the Appreciation at Work Training Kit:

Facilitator’s Guide Excerpt

Participant’s Guide Sample — Each trainee will receive a set of participant guides (one handout for each of the four training modules; each guide is four pages long). Here are the first pages of the participant guides for Module 3 and Module 4.

Here is a collage of clips from the Appreciation at Work training DVD. We hope you find them insightful and helpful as you seek to show appreciation at work.

Professional Coaches & Consultants: “Train the Trainer” online course

For individuals who want to use the Appreciation at Work training resources as part of the professional consulting services they provide, we have developed an online "train the trainer" process which will allow consultants to become certified facilitators to do so. In addition to receiving the Appreciation at Work training kit (described above), individuals (and groups of professionals) will be able to take an online training course that includes video instruction, voice-over PowerPoint teaching, interactive activities and a test to assess the professional’s grasp of the core concepts covered in the training process with clients.

The cost, which includes an Appreciation at Work training kit, will be $500 per trainer. There will be no fee-sharing arrangements made with consultants — you will be allowed to charge whatever fees you deem appropriate and will not share these with us. For more information and details, please contact us and indicate your interest in finding out more about the “train the trainer” course.
