Review

"I loved this book so much that I gave a copy to several co-workers. The 5 Languages of Appreciation in the Workplace helped me to understand the most appropriate ways to show affirmation and give positive feedback to co-workers and volunteers in ways that speak to them based on their primary "Appreciation Language." Great team building exercise to do with department staff, managerial teams, or executive teams." "Reviewed by Sue D, Net Galley, May 16, 2014, Rated 5 of 5 stars."

From the Back Cover

Is appreciation communicated regularly at your workplace?

Do you truly feel valued by those with whom you work?

If you express appreciation in ways that aren t meaningful to your co-workers, they may not feel valued at all. The problem is you re speaking different languages. In "The 5 Languages of Appreciation in the Workplace," Dr. Gary Chapman and Dr. Paul White will help you:

o Express genuine appreciation to co-workers and staff even on a tight budget.

o Increase loyalty with the employees and volunteers in your organization.

o Reduce cynicism and create a more positive work environment.

o Improve your ability to show appreciation for difficult colleagues.

o Individualize your expressions of appreciation by speaking the right language

o Convey the language of physical touch in appropriate ways.

Based on the #1 New York Times bestseller, "The 5 Love Languages(r)," Dr. Chapman and Dr. White give you practical steps to make any workplace environment more encouraging and productive. Before you know it, you will learn to speak and understand the unique languages of appreciation and feel truly valued in return.

Praise for "The 5 Languages of Appreciation in the Workplace"

I have really worked hard for many years to appreciate my co-workers scattered across the USA. However, this simple process and tool has put me light years ahead. It will greatly help your relationships and productivity as a leader.

Kent Humphreys, Chairman, American Health Partners

This book addresses not just the need for the life-giving appreciation we all need, but takes us through the process of discovering what that looks like for ourselves and for those with whom we work. Everyone who reads this book will without doubt be better equipped to create an atmosphere of appreciation in their sphere of influence wherever that is.

Lynne Smith, Director of Leadership Development, Next LEVEL Leadership Canada

Trusting relationships are the glue that holds commerce together. They are more important than skills or knowledge. This book shows how to build trust on a personal level in the workplace and its principles apply for a wide variety of organizations.

Tom Nicholson, Executive Director, HR People & Strategy"

I am currently in the process of reading it but I wanted to write a review. I like the concept of the book...the idea that not everyone wants to hear "thank you". Some people prefer acts of kindness or spending quality time with their manager as a sign of appreciation. Personally I find the book a bit slow. They seem to explain things that really don't need an explanation (e.g. spending time with co-workers or managers...Yup...got it). I would recommend the book for the ideas but just be prepared that you might end up skipping a few paragraphs here and there.

We all need to be appreciated, Understanding what each individual values from an appreciation perspective, will take the process of appreciation forward significantly. If we only took the time to understand others we certainly could make a huge difference in their lives.

We have so much conflict and pettiness in the workplace right now. I shared a phrase from this book with my boss and she immediately asked to borrow the book to read. I am optimistic about what it will do for our workplace.

If you've already read the book on the languages of love you'll probably feel like you're just getting a more detailed account and more examples of how to apply those to your business. Pretty sweet ideas too.
