If you live in Singapore, chances are, you already speak multiple languages. But are you fluent in any of the five Love Languages? Gary Chapman, author of The Five Love Languages, has been proclaimed a relationship saviour, with thousands of readers testifying to the book’s ability to improve their relationships. The different Love Languages refer to specific ways people wish to receive love – but while you may be faithful to your S.O., there are likely a few other people you’ve made a commitment to, share goals with, and that you see at least five days a week: your colleagues (and your boss, of course).
First, you need to find out what language each person responds best to by testing them all and taking note of which they react most favourably to. If they begin to reciprocate a
certain behaviour, or seem to be more amicable towards you, you’ve probably uncovered their Love Language. Now, it’s time to express your newfound “commitment”. Of
course, we’re not saying you can wine and dine your boss into submission if your work is sub-par, but healthier relationships at work can equal a happier life at work (and we all spend way too much time there as it is).
