12:15pm-12:45pm The Vocabulary of Inclusion: The 5 Languages of Appreciation

General Session
Many employees don’t feel like they are “part of the team” and a primary reason is they don’t feel appreciated or connected to the organization. Once leaders understand the fact that not everyone feels valued in the same ways, they can learn how to communicate appreciation in the ways that are meaningful to each person. Appreciation, however, is not just about making employees “feel good,” communicating authentic appreciation significantly affects the health, functioning, and profitability of companies. Discover why most employee recognition programs aren’t effective in increasing employee engagement and learn how to train your leaders and team members in communicating authentic appreciation to one another, so each person feels truly valued. 
In this session, you will learn: 
- The practical impact of how authentic appreciation impacts the functioning and profitability of organizations 
- How to differentiate between employee recognition and authentic appreciation 
- How the 5 languages of appreciation can help leaders create a more inclusive culture with a new vocabulary of meaningful messaging
