The Power of Appreciation: Inspire Success, Engagement and Perspective

Mike Robbins, expert in teamwork, leadership and emotional intelligence; author; former professional baseball player

Appreciation is one of the most powerful yet overlooked aspects of successfully motivating and empowering people and teams. According to the latest research in the fields of positive psychology and strengths-based leadership, when individuals and teams put more attention on what is working, instead of focusing on problems and perceived weaknesses, they thrive. Through this program, which is based on the key principles of his book Focus on the Good Stuff, Robbins illustrates how appreciation impacts productivity, morale and success.
