Creating a Positive Work Environment Through Authentic Appreciation  

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).  This fast-paced, high-energy humorous presentation will encourage you and give you the tools and resources to make a difference in your workplace.

How to Avoid Becoming a Toxic Workplace

More and more is being discussed about the toxic workplace – and research has shown that millions of people report hating their jobs.  Dr. White, in research for his upcoming book, Rising Above a Toxic Workplace, has identified those characteristics that create negative workplace environments and the early warning signs employees should pay attention to.  Additionally, he has created a “survival kit” to help individuals cope with challenging situations and to be able to take care of themselves in an unhealthy environment.   Be ready to wince with pain (to some of the stories), be encouraged (by the steps that can be taken), and laugh together as Dr. White addresses the realities of negative workplaces but gives instructions on how to avoid becoming one.

“I Can’t Do This Much Longer!” Proven Strategies to Help You Reduce Your Stress Level Today  (and it isn’t taking deep breaths)

The stress level in the workplace has literally exploded – virtually every organization is dealing with increased demands, regulatory issues, staff challenges, and decreased revenue.  As a result, many employees are literally at the breaking point (or tasks don’t get done correctly or on time.)  Dr. White takes research proven over decades to reduce individual’s experience of stress and makes the concepts applicable to each person’s daily life.  This presentation is guaranteed to reduce the stress level of employees, managers and across the organization if the principles are implemented.  Be ready to be encouraged, breathe a sigh of relief and enjoy a time of laughter together.

Understanding the Core Characteristics Needed for Life Success  (as obtained from interviews with successful business and family leaders)

Our culture is highly focused on “success”, which is usually defined as success in academics, athletics, or financially.  But many individuals, parents, and families are confused about what they need to be focusing on with their children, adolescents and young adults  -- diving into traveling sports teams, emphasizing good grades and test scores, and trying to foster the development of an entrepreneurial drive.  Dr. White, a psychologist who has worked with successful individuals, families and business leaders for over two decades, will outline and describe those core characteristics necessary to be successful in life – regardless of one’s intellectual capabilities or success in school.  His services and resources are utilized by Princeton University, Dartmouth College, Microsoft, the Million Dollar Round Table, the Salvation Army and World Vision.  Come expecting to gain clarity on the skills and character qualities necessary to succeed in life and to be able to develop a plan to get there.
