Last month, we read The 5 Languages of Appreciation in the Workplace by Gary Chapman and Paul White. This interesting read was both insightful and entertaining for the members of our team. Each chapter provided a section to reflect on what the different languages of appreciation meant to ourselves and how we interpret it.
The book outlines these as the 5 Languages of Appreciation in the Workplace:
Words of Affirmation: Uses words to affirm someone's character or action. Ex.) Praise
Quality Time: Giving undivided personal attention. Ex.) Having quality conversations with your peers, committing to time
Acts of Service: Helping others when they need it. Ex.) Asking a colleague if they need help on a big project
Tangible Gifts: Giving someone a thoughtful token of appreciation. Ex.) Concert tickets for exceeding their quarterly goals
Physical Touch:Not as much of a valued form of appreciation, but appropriate physical touch is still relevant. Ex.) Pat on the back, high fives
