Author: Gary Chapman, Paul White
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 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.
Based on the #1 New York Times best seller The 5 Love Languages ®, Dr. Chapman and Dr. White give you practical steps to make any workplace environment more encouraging and productive. You will learn to speak and understand the unique languages of appreciation and feel truly valued in return.
"Wes Bleed’s narration is exactly what this new title by Gary Chapman and Paul White needs. Fans of THE 5 FIVE LOVE LANGUAGES will appreciate their take on a new topic, avoiding miscommunication in professional relationships. Bleed infuses the persuasive nature of the text with a steady cadence that puts the listener at ease while also being informative. There is a slight metallic ring to his tone, but it doesn’t distract or seem out of place in a business-related volume. Those new to Chapman’s language series will find the discussion easy to sink into."
