A Compliment

When is the last time you intentionally complimented someone? A compliment is an expression of esteem, respect, affection, or admiration.
There are many benefits to offering a compliment. Compliments are a way of spreading happiness. Giving a compliment is a way of connecting honestly, directly, and kindly with another human being.
Compliments are a very inexpensive way of rewarding others. They say you get what you reward, so look for opportunities to reinforce good behavior and reward those around you with a compliment.
Here are tips to give a good compliment:

  • – Be specific – don’t just tell someone “nice job,” a better statement is, “your attention to detail made this report eye-catching.”
  • – Be sincere – make sure your words match your body language; make eye contact and engage with the person you are complimenting.
  • – Be unexpected – look for opportunities to sincerely appreciate something unique and special. Offer an unexpected compliment to anyone, anywhere for an instant boost.

Sincere compliments helps focus on the positive and builds trust. Higher trust means better relationships and a better environment. Give a compliment today…
