About the Author

Dr. Paul White is a psychologist, author, speaker, and consultant who “makes work relationships work.” For the past 20 years, he’s helped organizations transform their team dynamics, workplace culture, and other critical aspects of what they do, working with companies like Microsoft, the Million Dollar Round Table, MillerCoors, The Salvation Army, and numerous hospitals, schools, colleges, and government agencies. He is also the coauthor of the best-selling The 5 Languages of Appreciation in the Workplace.

Sadly, we still need this book. Fifty-one percent of managers believe they are doing a good job of recognizing good work. Only 17 percent of their employees agree. That statistic from The Vibrant Workplace shows why we need Paul White’s splendid new book. He explains why our typical ways of showing appreciation—like recognition programs—rarely live up to the hype. But he doesn’t leave us hanging. He tells us how we can show appreciation in ways that actually matter to others at work. Consider buying two copies, one for yourself and one for your boss.

Misconceptions abound on what is needed to create a healthy, thriving, and engaged workforce. In The Vibrant Workplace, Dr. White shatters these misconceptions with research-based insight into how employees are motivated. Not stopping there, The Vibrant Workplace also provides practical steps on how to overcome the most common obstacles to employee engagement.

I frequently recommend The 5 Languages of Appreciation in the Workplace by Gary Chapman and Paul White in seminars and workshops I teach because it’s an “aha” for many people. Paul White’s latest book, The Vibrant Workplace, is an invaluable companion to 5 Languages because it identifies the common obstacles to increasing appreciation in the workplace and shows you how to address them. Now I’ll be recommending both books.

Over the past ten years I’ve had a chance to work with several companies, and it would be extremely rare to find a company, or even a department, that could be described as “vibrant”—full of energy and enthusiasm. The good news is that in this book, Dr. Paul White shares with us a practical approach on how we can create vibrant workplaces through the languages of appreciation.

The Vibrant Workplace covers all the bases. Whether it’s an organization that has no structured appreciation or recognition program in place, or an organization with a flourishing appreciation culture, Dr. White offers practical insights and ideas for meeting the needs of today’s workforce to feel appreciated and valued for the contributions they make every day.

If you want to revitalize your organization and enhance employee engagement, this book is a great resource. In The Vibrant Workplace, Dr. White provides tips and tools on how to overcome the practical challenges of implementing and sustaining a culture of appreciation in the workplace—by using personalized and effective ways of communicating authentic appreciation at work.

Jasmine Liew

When we talk about workplaces, the typical adjectives are: task-oriented, stressful, high pressure. Yet I was delighted to read The Vibrant Workplace, which gives us an alternative—that our workplace can be people-centric, vibrant, and engaging! Based on solid research and his personal experience, Dr. White gives many practical tips and suggestions to build such a culture via personalized and culture-sensitive appreciation.
