“The 5 Languages of Appreciation in the Workplace is timely and so very practical. Appreciation is the “pay” everyone is looking for today but few know how to either give or ask for a “raise” in that area. This book addresses not just the need for the life-giving appreciation we all need, but takes us through the process of discovering what that looks like for ourselves and for those with whom we work. Everyone who reads this book will without doubt be better equipped to create an atmosphere of appreciation in their sphere of influence wherever that is.”

Stephan Joubert, Professor – University of Pretoria and University of Nijmegen in The Netherlands

In this absolute must-read book, Gary Chapman and Paul White provide creative, practical ways to show appreciation to every single person at work, automatically boosting their confidence and productivity. This book holds the key to changing all working environments into safe and effective spaces where people can feel valued.

“We previously had an incredibly high turnover rate…But since we started the 5 Languages of Appreciation training with Dr. White, we haven’t lost any team members. The team is happier and more positive, and we actually have hired back employees. The 5 Languages of Appreciation model has had a positive impact within our organization, from the top management down to the line workers.”

“This is a well-researched, useful book for business leaders that offers a much needed message that won’t wear out with repetition: ‘If people enjoy their work and feel appreciated…they are far more likely to have organizational loyalty and work hard”
