The Power of Words That Encourage and Praise

TalkShop power of words tipsDays can be so frenzied, that they get to one’s nerves. There are days we take it out on family when we get home. Unfortunately for some, it has become a habit such that words are carelessly uttered out of anger or frustration.

If your words at home or at work are mostly orders barked out, or phrases that demean, it is time to improve your outlook and use the power of words of encouragement.

Sheila Viesca, TalkShop CEO, informs, “There is an effective way of using words to bolster good behavior. Rather than praising an inherent trait such as ‘You are so efficient,’ focus on the deed, ‘I appreciate your initiative without being asked.’ Being specific reinforces the positive action that will inspire children to keep getting better.

What are words of praise and encouragement to use in the family and in the workplace? Viesca suggests the following:

1. “I appreciate how focused and conscientious you were at doing your tasks.”

2. “You really can tidy your room | present a powerful report better than anyone. Good job!”

3. “You did so well. I am so proud of how you exerted the big effort to make a difference.”

4. “I am so impressed how you…”

5. “You really worked it out when…”

6. “You did a thorough job…”

7. “I appreciate how hard you worked on…”

8. “Great imagination on the…”

9. “You’re so good at…”

10. “I’m amazed at how… Well done!”

Even adults respond well to inspiring words used wisely and sincerely. Words of praise instill confidence and motivation, especially when it goes hand in hand with the discipline that is applied with concern and sensibility.
