This Month's Highlight:

This Month's Highlighted Book at the MCMC Planetree Health Resource Library The 5 Languages of Appreciation in the Workplace: Empowering Organizations by Encouraging People.
By Gary Chapman and Paul White
(Book and Audiobook) available

The 5 Languages of Appreciation in the Workplace: Empowering Organizations by Encouraging People, by Gary Chapman and Paul White, applies the love language concept to the workplace. This book helps supervisors and managers effectively communicate appreciation and encouragement to their employees, resulting in higher levels of job satisfaction, healthier relationships between managers and employees, and decreased cases of burnout. Ideal for both the profit and non-profit sectors, the principles presented in this book have a proven history of success in businesses, schools, medical offices, churches, and industry.

Review:
"Trusting relationships are the glue that holds commerce together.  They are more important than skills or knowledge.  This book shows how to build trust on a personal level in the workplace and its principles apply for a wide variety of organizations."

Tom Nicholson, Executive Director, HR People & Strategy
