One challenge faced by leaders of non-profits and large church staffs is adequately communicating appreciation to employees, coworkers and others involved in the work of ministry. As Drs. White and Chapman acknowledge, the financial downturn has reduced the amount of financial resources available for communicating appreciation and a job well done to employees in the for-profit world as well as in the non-profit world. The fact that financial bonuses aren't adequate in every employment context, and also not available, only highlights the timeliness of "The 5 Languages of Appreciation in the Workplace." The assessment instrument that is included with the book is an excellent resource and one that enables supervisors, managers and pastors accurately express appreciation to those they work with. As the pastor of a congregation I have found the assessment along with the book extremely helpful not merely with employees but also with key volunteers. By discovering what a specific volunteer's language of appreciation is I find that I can better support and encourage them in their work. This contributes to longevity and assists them in avoiding burnout. Finally, there are two points that make this book exceptional. While Dr. White didn't include "Physical Touch" in the assessment instrument (for obvious reasons) he does discuss it giving suggestions on how this language of appreciation can be expressed without awkwardness or impropriety. Also, the "toolkit" at the end of the book is extremely helpful in the application of the principles of the book to specific work contexts.

High turnover of quality employees is felt by businesses right where it hurts the most - net profit. Retaining valuable workers is essential to long term growth and success of any organization. In my opinion, the more people feel appreciated at work the less likely conflict will occur, even possibly preventing workplace lawsuits. The book The 5 Languages of Appreciation in the Workplace gives the reader practical tools for maintaining your most valuable work place asset - your employees. This book is a quick read that is well written and entertaining. I recommend this book for all leaders who want to create a first class positive work culture. I'm sorry to say that if I would have applied this material on the job years ago, much of the turmoil I have experienced at work could have been prevented.

I've thoroughly enjoyed 'The Five Languages of Love' thus far and this addition was no exception. I've worked in places where it's made me physically sick to walk through the door and I currently work in a place where they practice 'The Five Languages' teachings and have never read the books. they've taken the time to know that buying me lunch when I've a stressful workload will get me much farther and keep me pleasant much longer.

At office we often don't know what to do or to tell. This book give us cues to help coworkers and boss. You can change relationship between each other and get a better place to work. Thanks to Mr Chapman.

Just a sample. Too simplistic. Duh increased worker appreciation makes a business better.
