Dramatically improve workplace relationships simply by learning your coworkers' language of appreciation.

This book will give you the tools to improve staff morale, create a more positive workplace, and increase employee engagement. How? By teaching you to effectively communicate authentic appreciation and encouragement to employees, co-workers, and leaders. Most relational problems in organizations flow from this question: do people feel appreciated? This book will help you answer "Yes!"

A bestseller--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, non-profits, hospitals, schools, government agencies, and organizations with remote workers.

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.

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.
