Giving compliments

"If you want to get the best out of people, you need to pay them a compliment now and again," explains Ernst Bohlmeijer, professor at the University of Twente (The Netherlands). This course about how to give a compliment and how to receive a compliment helps you discover the power of a compliment. There is a lack of appreciation. It's been scientifically proven. It's especially true in the workplace, which is crazy. Appreciation is a major driving force. Employees feel more involved when they receive genuine attention and appreciation. They are more motivated. They work harder. If managers were aware of this, they'd certainly pay their staff a compliment more often! And this doesn't just apply to the workplace but also in everyday life. To everyone, you too!

Giving compliments lets others grow. Do you mainly focus on what could be improved? Or on what's already being done well? We tend to focus on what can be improved. We soon take the things that go smoothly for granted. What about you? Are you in an environment where compliments are given? If so, you're probably the best person to judge. Maybe it feels crazy suddenly paying your supervisor or mother-in-law a compliment? But did you know that positive appreciation not only has the power to brighten up your day, but it can also change your life. This is because you then take a more positive approach to life, appreciate more. As a result you feel better, and this strengthens your relationships with others. You'll discover all this and more in this course.
