Reviews from Good Reads about the The 5 Languages of Appreciation in the Workplace

Julian Young rated it 4 of 5 stars

This is a good books for leaders to understand motivational practices that address their entire workforce. Too many motivational efforts (actually just plan good ole leadership) rely on one or two methods of showing people how they are valuable. Unfortunately, this only addresses 20% or 40% of the workforce. This book addresses that deficiency and gives tools and ideas on how to more fully address "value" in the workforce.

While I love the original 5 Love Languages, this transferance to the corporate world didn't seem to hold up. Also, the promised inventory to help determine a person's/employee's language of appreciation is only accesible by using a code not found (maybe covered up) in the library edition of the book. Disappointing and unoriginal.
