How to motivate people

Some techniques to enhance motivation:

  • Acknowledge what the person says to show that you're really listening.
  • Clarifying can deepen mutual understanding.
  • Validating a person's feelings is essential so they don't feel judged.
  • Ask how he or she managed to overcome a similar situation.
  • Help the person to reframe the situation.
  • Celebrate their wins to increase positive emotions.
  • Expose limiting beliefs by asking how true is that belief and how has it affected them.
  • Consider the opposite view they currently hold 
  • Assumptions are about why, if this happened in the past, must it happen again.
