Is Praise Important to You?
The Importance and Power of Praising
Turn you life around and be the best that you can be!
Probably, the most effective way to motivate people is to praise them sincerely, to recognize something that they have done that is worthy of recognition. A good coach knows how to praise. A good manager should do the same. Learn in this Webinar how to encourage others to perform at their very best. Learn how to effectively give praise. And, if you agree that praise is necessary for your own success and others do not praise you, then why not praise yourself.
A few years ago, I was preparing to run, for the first time, a three-hour seminar on the Harada Method to 100 senior executives at Suncor. I never did this before and was concerned and nervous. To encourage myself, I remembered periods in the past when I was successful and, like my own coach, I keep repeating, “I will be great!”
When I was young, I never remembered being praised by my father or any teacher. I had a very low self-image of myself. Not being praised, I did not know how to praise offers. But, when I had my own company, early in life, I realized that an important part of my job was to praise others, but I didn’t know how.
“Treat people as if they were what they ought to be and you help them to become what they are capable of being.” –Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Takashi Harada taught at the worst school in Osaka and was able to coach these “underachievers” to be winners. An important part of his method is to know how to praise.
“One of the highest of human duties is the duty of encouragement…It is easy to laugh at men’s ideals; it is easy to pour cold water on their enthusiasm; it is easy to discourage others. The world is full of discouragers. We have a Christian duty to encourage one another. Many a time a word of praise or thanks or appreciation or cheer has kept a man on his feet. Blessed is the man who speaks such a word.” William Barclay
