Listening to an audio book rather than reading a book has some advantages. One is, you can do many things at the same time while listening to it. Second, if English is your second language, listening to an audio book helps you correct your pronunciation of words and it influence you to be more neutral in your accent. Third, it gives you a better memory of what you have listened to. Fourth, it feeds your mind, ears and heart with positive words and insights.
Now, let's go to the content of this audio book.
Basically, The Five Languages of Appreciation In the Workplace is similar to the Five Love Languages book because it also reminds us of the five love languages: 1) The Words of Affirmation, 2) Quality Time , 3) Acts of Service, 4) Tangible Gifts, and, 5) Physical Touch.
In this audio book, you would learn how to apply the concept to your daily life. Each of us has the primary language of appreciation and there are different ways to communicate appreciation to others and discovering colleagues' and employees' languages of appreciation would help us more to be effective in communicating our appreciation to them.
I agree to what the authors said, "Our language of appreciation becomes our blind spot because we tend to express our own language of appreciation to others when it's not their own primary language of appreciation."
"The number one factor in job satisfaction is not about the pay but the appreciation employees receive. Job satisfaction will diminish if an employee is not well appreciated."
