Appreciation Languages
for Family, Friends and Colleagues

Do you know each person's appreciation language?

It is useful to show appreciation appropriately to those around us. This leads to more harmonious relationships and good results. Sometimes we give or receive appreciation and do not notice. Understanding your own preferences, and others, assists us to communicate more clearly and effectively. Here is an exercise for you and your colleagues or family members to try.

Take the Quiz online here!

Ask your Colleagues , Family and Friends to the quizz too. You will enjoy getting to know how to have your efforts in appreciating others recieve more positive response.

A little extra tip :

3 things to pay attention to that will give you more information for showing your appreciation for others in more appropriate ways:

1. What does the person ask for?

2. What does the person do when showing appreciation to others?

3. What does the person complain about if they do not get it?

Enjoy showing your appreciation daily and getting better responses from your efforts !
