If you express appreciation in ways that aren't meaningful to your coworkers, 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 coworkers 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
  • Individualize your expressions of appreciation by speaking the right language

    " A good reminder of why & how we need to appreciate others, especially in the workplace. Most importantly is the understanding that people want/need appreciation on different levels. "

    " ... Good reminder to express appreciation daily in the workplace. Hard to express the 5 types in every job environment. An easy read. "

    " Fantastic book. Very helpful advice on how to communicate better and encourage coworkers. Pure gold! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Julianne Dunn | 12/4/2013

    " If you have read any of the other 5 languages books, this book isn't anything new. There are a few helpful appendix questions that would help in the workplace. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kimberly Porter | 11/21/2013

    " Basically a good book. Backs up stuff about encouragement/appreciation that I already know. It read too much like a step-by-step advertisement for the MBA tool that goes along with the book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kenny Seneff | 11/10/2013

    " Gave it a 5 star rating because of the effect it's had on my company. The book is great but could definitely be a little shorter. You don't need to read this entire book to get the benefit from it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Megan Taylor | 11/10/2013

    " Insightful. Even though the authors do address this program to co-workers, it is still primarily geared towards managers. The later half reads like an article in a psychology/sociology journal. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Julie | 9/13/2013

    " Wonderful ways to address and identify differences and communication styles to effect positive changes in the workforce. "

    " Fascinating. Looking forward to trying to put some of this stuff into practice. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Fernando Morales | 3/15/2013

    " This book was kinda not worth it. Listen and either compliment something, or give a gift to someone, or give more work to someone??? Kinda common advice. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ember | 8/15/2012

    " We read this book in the office. It was interesting to read the first few chapters, take the test and then share. After the test was over and you explored the five different languages, the book became a little mundane. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sharon | 4/24/2012

    " Amazing how really listening to your co-workers everyday words gives you insight into their personalities and a few adjustments can make for a much happier and productive workplace. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Suzanne | 2/7/2012

    " Helpful information. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Heather | 12/30/2011

    " good information, but didn't think you needed the entire book or it could have been put together with better examples to make it more intriguing. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Natalie W | 10/7/2011

    " If you're not familiar with the 5 Love Languages, this is a good book. If you are familiar with them, there isn't too much new material though there is some new content on how to apply the languages at work. Overall, I still think the concept is fantastic and I'm teaching a class on this at work. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Aaron Dietz | 9/19/2011

    " Well, it's your basic common sense, but it's common sense that is helpful to have spelled out for you. I didn't so much read the book as read the bold text but I still think I walked away a little smarter! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Aaron | 9/17/2011

    " Well, it's your basic common sense, but it's common sense that is helpful to have spelled out for you. I didn't so much read the book as read the bold text but I still think I walked away a little smarter! "
