5.0 out of 5 stars Face-off at the office ... not a pleasant scene, March 18, 2012
This review is from: The 5 Languages of Appreciation in the Workplace: Empowering Organizations by Encouraging People (Hardcover)
In the hard economic times in which we live, the face-off between employer and employee has contributed to making bad situations worse. Employers caution workers citing the precarious nature of the current job market and inform them that they ought to be happy they even have a job. Employees walk around on eggshells and avoid the necessary ingenuity and risk-taking behaviors needed for most businesses to succeed. Hope of a successful future in the workplace and the expression of appreciation for a job well-done bolster morale. When morale is low absenteeism increases and employees are only willing to offer the bare minimum effort in order to put food on their own tables. Everybody loses.

Bestselling author Gary Chapman adds another title to his collection of "5 Languages" books. Paul White adds both academic credentials and business experience to Chapman's background in marriage and family counseling. Theirs is a sorely needed book on understanding the dynamics of the workplace. The 5 Languages of Appreciation in the Workplace brings clarity and understanding to the nature of the beast and provides resources to help both employers and employees find the path toward improved relations. Readers will learn how to determine their own appreciation language and can then pinpoint that of others in their workplace. Armed with this knowledge as well as with the stand-alone resources in the back of the book, readers will be able to participate in the solution by taking the initiative in appreciating others.

NOTE: I requested and received a copy of this title via NetGalley.com but made no commitment to review it.

5 of 5 stars.
