Review quote

"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."
