The Power of Compliments

The Power of Compliments

Honest compliments are healthy. They’re good nutrition for all of us. 

Sadly, there are a few well-intended and, for the most part, “good-behavior” directives that are anything but, well, good. If you praise someone or some company or an employee or an employer, you’re kissing they’re you-know-whats. Or, if you praise him or her, they’ll get swollen heads. 

Rubbish. Not, I repeat, not if the compliment is honest and sincere. 

For praise to be healthy, honesty is the one element that must be present and accounted for. Lip-service praise carries the disgusting patina of toxicity.

Honest praise deserves to be woven into the fabric of any business, family, lifestyle. When you’re known as one who offers honest praise, moments when you take someone to task are far more likely to be understood and respected. 

Say your child makes their bed. Does so regularly. Nothing stops you from stopping by and saying, “You make your bed every day. I wish I’d had your self-discipline when I was your age. I’m proud of you.”

Or, you have an employee, or a boss, who consistently does their work well. Praise their work. And, praise the boss too.

If the compliment is honest and sincere, it is deserved. This includes complimenting the bosses.

…having spoken to Angie regarding any issues we’d had, I was greatly appreciative and made much happier that it was directly and promptly addressed. They truly have been wonderful about making sure their clients are made happy. Thank you once again Angie and Heart of Gold staff.

This is my 4th week with HOG. I’ve been in the industry for over 20 plus years. I must say, HOG is by far the best home health care agency I’ve worked for. From the initial contact to the interview, and being hired, it was a seamless process. The owners genuinely care about their employees as does the entire office staff. I’ve never worked for a home health care company that genuinely cares for its employees. I look forward to many years with HOG.
