Weekly #WOWfactor- Is Being Appreciated in the Workplace Important?

appreciationRecently on our great business trip adventure I was honored to meet Dr. Gary Chapman, marriage counselor and author of the #1 Best-seller “The Five Love Languages:The Secret to Love That Lasts.”  Isn’t it amazing that I had to travel 1200 miles to meet someone who is located only 45 minutes from my home?

Upon being introduced to Dr. Chapman he immediately called me Sue and asked where I was from! When I said Greensboro, NC we could immediately relate as he is from Winston-Salem,NC.  He left me with the feeling of  being valued and appreciated! Then as he addressed the audience of thousands he made you feel that he was only speaking to you, and was able to engage everyone into his powerful message!

How does he do that?  I was later to learn he has co-authored a book, “The 5 Languages of Appreciation in the Workplace,” with Dr. Paul White.  After reading it I realized this is the key to doing business and living life; by not only knowing your “love language”  and recognizing the language of the others you interact with, but also knowing really how to encourage and empower others by appreciating them in a way they understand you are “real” and “sincere.”

Do you know your “Love Language?”  Can you see how that can relate to “appreciation in the workplace?”  Just so you will know when we meet, or next time I see you mine is “Words of Affirmation!”

Have a great Thankful Thursday living the best version of you possible!
