Compliment To Affect People's Sense of Self

To compliment people is to choose to affect them and who they will become, along with their sense of self.

We don't realize the impact our compliments hold and studies have found that when we are complimented by the people we look up to or they say something to us that we resonate with, we take in their words and integrate it within ourselves.

Greetings Create Human Contact

Communication is more than just transmission. It is creation. It creates experiences and builds relationships, and if we take communication away, it also takes away the relationship.

Starting with a greeting will oil the social wheels and this has been backed by studies stating that when educators do not greet their students, it affects their ability to learn. So, always look for opportunities for connection so that you'll be able to constantly build relationships through and through.

Humans need connection and closeness with other humans and we can enact this sense of love and collegiality with disclosure of how we think, how we feel, and who we are.

There are three elements to disclosure and these are:

  • Authenticity
  • Integrity
  • Human

When we disclose something it needs to be congruent with what we feel on the inside and what we show on the outside. Disclosure needs to be truthful and personal.

There are two steps to becoming a good listener: to give our full attention and to listen deeply to the other person without judgment.

We can transcend the perceived differences that we have with another person when we listen to them and look at them with warmth without any conditions - this act is called unconditional positive regards.

Practicing positive communication will help us create relationships of great quality wherever we go.
