Giving Praise Weakens




Motivating people can be done in many ways. Whatever is effective to one person mostly depends on his personality. It varies.  And appreciating what one person does is the most common way to do it.  Though there must be limits to it. 


Giving praise to what a person does must be kept in check. Providing too little of it will make someone feel ignored. Be generous about it but with just the right amount. Too much praise on the other hand keeps someone stagnant and standards will be weakened. Acknowledging someone because he does something he is expected to do is not helpful to his growth when done many times. 

Giving praise, as well as criticism, are great tools in motivating people. But always remember to use it with the right dosage.

  1. Sensing a genuine praise from a fake one is also a skill and it is also important that we take time to know ourselves so we know where we are at in terms of being praised, criticized and motivated.
