I brought this book up to our VP of our department at work as something each of the 6 attorneys and their assistants should read to develop what the "love language" is of the person that works for them and who they work for. Do you think these "languages" would apply to this setting (office)? Before I order 16 of these books I would like to make sure I am not out of line by giving it to those in our department as an assignment to read to aid in their working relationship? Thanks
I say inappropriate for work. It clearly is oriented towards love relationships, and if you want to be in love relationships with your co-workers, ok, but if you want to be in productive working relationships then get something more suitable for that type of relationship, such as the Jung and Meyers-Briggs Type Indicator. Do a wikipedia search for those names and you'll get some info and links to start with. I have used them and found them very helpful in forming good working relationships with co-workers.
I have really enjoyed this book. It's primary target is to help people improve their marriage, bit I find it very helpful in understanding your children, parrents and friends as well. You just have to 'translate' it a bit. http://www.learnerbyheart.com/love-languages-for-beginners/
