Just to be clear, there is no screaming, ranting, or cursing involved here.
It only takes two words in the following order to encourage and demotivate a person in a nanosecond.
The first is “yes” which prepares us for positive acknowledgment, affirmation, and overall support. There is an awesomeness that comes from knowing that we are appreciated.
Yet, the second word “But” negates and destroys all that positive goodness that precedes it – and it happens instantly.
So refuse to start by telling someone how good she or something she did is and taking it all away with a BIG BUT!!!
Have a great day,
