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:
- Express genuine appreciation to co-workers and staff - even on a tight budget.
- Increase loyalty with the employees and volunteers in your organization.
- Reduce cynicism and create a more positive work environment.
- Improve your ability to show appreciation for difficult colleagues.
- Individualize your expressions of appreciation by speaking the right language
- Convey the language of physical touch in appropriate ways.
Based on the #1 New York Times bestseller, The 5 Love Languages®, 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.

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."

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.

I saw them put a lot of our discussion into practice by complimenting each other and making small gestures of kindness such as making coffee for their galley mate when making themselves one.
Will use before all briefings in future.
I think we should all read this wonderful book and share what we understand with all our friends and family members.
Thank you Dr. Chapman.
