Get on Board! It’s Annual NATIONAL COMPLIMENT DAY ! Time to “Pump” someone up and give credit for a job well done. Can’t think of a better use of our energy than patting someone on the back. National Compliment Day considers a compliment has many POWERFUL Effects; instills confidence , improves mood ,and tells someone they are noticed.
Again a compliment should be sincere. People know when we’re fake and that can be worse than getting a thoughtless birthday gift. Complimenting character versus a haircut are different. One suggests you respect someone while the other tells them you paid attention. It’s also important to compliment what’s makes a person unique and stand out.
Harvard Business School research indicates generous compliments lead to success The researchers found that being reminded of past successes (by friends, family, and colleagues) made people perform at their absolute best. People who received praise were:
More resilient to stress …More resistant to disease and burnout …..Better at creative problem solving and performance under pressure……And formed stronger long-term relationships with their employer !!!!The study also shows compliments offer recipients “a different narrative about themselves by helping them see the impact they are capable of making on others.” So think about that person whom you feel deserves a compliment and help make their day! You may be surprised the difference it can make!
