Effective praise can be given using these three methods:
Defining your intention and providing praise. This involves being mindful of the consequences of your words.
Instead of plain flattery, try to encourage them to move forward and take up further challenges. This also encourages them to keep learning.
Focus the praise on their effort, not their ability. If the trait is not fixed, the person cannot be vain about it. By praising efforts, we are motivating them to push further and get out of their comfort zone.
