Publisher's Summary

Based on the number one New York Times best seller The 5 Love Languages® (over 12 million copies sold)

Dramatically improve workplace relationships simply by learning your coworkers’ language of appreciation. This book will give you the tools to improve staff moral, create a more positive workplace, and increase employee engagement. How? By teaching you to effectively communicate authentic appreciation and encouragement to employees, coworkers, and leaders.

Most relational problems in organizations flow from this question: Do people feel appreciated? This book will help you answer “Yes!" A best seller - having sold over 300,000 copies and translated into 16 languages - this book has proven to be effective and valuable in diverse settings. Its principles about human behavior have helped businesses, nonprofits, hospitals, schools, government agencies, and organizations with remote workers.

Plus! Each book contains a free access code for taking the online Motivating By Appreciation (MBA) Inventory (does not apply to purchases of used books). The assessment identifies a person’s preferred languages of appreciation to help you apply the book. When supervisors and colleagues understand their coworkers’ primary and secondary languages, as well as the specific actions they desire, they can effectively communicate authentic appreciation, thus creating healthy work relationships and raising the level of performance across an entire team or organization.

Take your team to the next level by applying The 5 Languages of Appreciation in the Workplace.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Great content, just very repetitive

SO you have great information but the book probably could have been cut down by half. I don't know why you have to tell the same information multiple times with multiple examples. Its not rocket science.

Don't Miss the Mark

In a professional environment, it is very difficult to make sure that everyone feels valued and appreciated. The book and accompanying quiz are very helpful tools for those that want to ensure that their team is valued and appreciated. The results of value and appreciation are a "No Brainer" and are truly priceless for a company. If you care about your company and your team, do yourself a favor and read this book and take the quiz. You can also purchase additional quiz codes for those that do not want to read the book, or that you would just like to find out their Language of appreciation.
I would have to agree with some other reviews in that there is some repetition in the book, and that does make it a little harder to pay attention to. Also, the narration is in a soothing voice that could lull some to sleep.

Apply this right away!

I loved this extremely logical and objective outline of how to effect positive change in a work environment (really ALL work environments!). I bought a hard copy so I can bookmark the points that are relevant to my work place and will be passing it along. The whole book is loaded with valuable data and identifies as many obstacles as possible. Highly recommend!

More sales than story

The concepts were good but he spent way too much time selling. Ruined the book for me.

blah.

skip the entire book and just do the test at the end. I lacked the patience for this book perhaps. I was not drawn in to read more. I could not get thru it. the narrator is tolerable. the topic is useful and because I could not get thru it, maybe dont be guided by my lackluster review, however my coworkers had to read it too and no one raved.
