Book Overview

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.

   Very informative
Well written. I was helped a lot in dealing with my employees and my children at home.

   Very Informative
The Five Love Languages were used in other relationships for a long time and it was great to see them being used in the workplace. Information for employers and managers is very helpful. The ideas of this book could make a huge difference in the workplace.

   Again, one more Dr. Chapman's book review
When we work under stress, many of us forget to appreciate our office mates. It's important to show our appreciation to our colleagues for what they do every day since we spend more time with them than we do at home. There are several ways to show it. I think we should all read this book and share our knowledge with our friends and family. Thank you for that.

   Written like you're an idiot
The book is so bad it's a slap in the face. The author talks to you like you're stupid, breaking down the basics of human communication. I couldn't finish the book because I was offended by the condescending tone. I had high hopes because of the other recommendations. I wouldn't pick up the other set of books after this.

   Perfect workplace accessory
If you like the original book of 5 Love Languages, you will like how it relates to the workplace. It's an asset to me as a manager.

   Didn't Really Learn Much
It is a challenge to show appreciation to the faculty that I am responsible for in my job. I read this book to learn new techniques to demonstrate that I value my faculty and help them at the university. That did not happen. I paid over two dollars for this book, but I felt I could have gotten the same information on the internet. Many of the anecdotes were too touching for me. I was rushing through the book after the third chapter, but I didn't get much out of it. I wish someone else would have read the book because I plan on discussing it with my fellow directors and deans and trying to come up with some ideas for our faculty.

   Valuable Exercise for our small business
One of our biggest opportunities as a leadership team was making people feel valued. It was a life saver for managers and leaders to have more awareness about the different languages of appreciation, but also to be more intentional within each language as the 'transactional' appreciation can make things worse than not expressing appreciation at all! We had about 30 people take the test and have shared the results with the team members so they can express their appreciation to each other. I would recommend this to any small business who is interested in this area.

   Easy to Understand Workplace Interactions
Relationship building with this paradigm is easy to understand. I used the book in my class. My students gained insight into their personal relationships. It is easy to read, understand, and recognize the importance of understanding others.

   CODE WAS USED FOR ALL 5 BOOKS I ORDERED! Made a mess of a workshop I had scheduled.
I am very upset that all the books came with codes that didn't work or were already used by someone else. During our workshop, we discovered this and had to purchase more codes. I had to pay double for all the codes. We had to pay double because we still need the books.
