How can leaders engender respect, empathy, and appreciation in the culture of their businesses? And is it possible to slow or stop the Great Resignation that is dismantling businesses left and right? According to Sarah McVanel, author of Forever Recognize Others' Greatness, it all starts with leaders who are willing to make intentional changes when it comes to noticing and showing appreciation for those around them. The result? A workplace culture with recognition at the forefront and a staff who won’t look elsewhere for purposeful employment. 


  • If people see that a new job can potentially “feed their souls” while feeding their bank accounts, then they are much more likely to look elsewhere for employment.
  • When we give validation and verification that our employees matter, they're more likely to stay.
  • Recognizing greatness is that unwavering belief that every one of us possesses greatness that deserves to be acknowledged.
  • If we can create an ecosystem of appreciation, it filters out into every facet of our business and leads to a true culture of abundance — real dollars and cents value.
  • The more we show appreciation in our personal lives and our professional lives, the more it becomes easy and intuitive to continue to do so.


Sarah McVanel is a recognition expert, speaker, coach, and author of Forever Recognize Others' Greatness: Solution-Focused Strategies for Satisfied Staff, High-Performing Teams, and Healthy Bottom Lines. She is passionate about helping businesses build “healthy and recognition-rich” teams.
