Publisher's Weekly

Chapman's bestselling The Five Love Languages meets psychologist White's work with businesses, and a new "Languages" application is born. According to the authors, the main reason for job satisfaction or dissatisfaction is "whether or not the individual feels appreciated and valued for the work they do." The book presents the five languages of appreciation--Words of Affirmation, Quality Time, Acts of Service, Tangible Gifts, Physical Touch--and how they are applied in the workplace. Chapman and White call it the "Motivating by Appreciation" model, explained in the book and offered online at The authors provide much useful information for owners, managers, and workers in industries ranging from nonprofits to schools, medical offices to manufacturers. They pay special attention to volunteers. 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." The book comes from a Christian publisher, but has wide application. (Aug.) Copyright 2011 Reed Business Information.
