To begin our experiment, let’s take a closer look at an American bestseller from 1992, like Career Contessa has already done, a platform that deals with work and education.
“The Five Languages of Love” by Gary Chapman, one of the leading experts on interpersonal relationships, describes five general ways that people express love. In the book they are described as follows: words of affirmation, acts of service, quality time, receiving gifts, physical contact.
To adapt these to the workplace, the American website Career Contessa converts them as follows: feedback and mentoring, support, workplace bonding, new opportunities and challenges, encouraging touch points. It also suggests a list of tips and practical examples for each category, which we will explain shortly.
