The Role of 'Thanks' When Praising.

Two Ways to Praise

Praise is important. If someone did something good we should mention that!

But there are two ways you can do that

  • Option one is to say “You did this very well!”.
  • Option two is to say “Thank you for supporting us”.

The Superior Way to Praise

The first version is like a teacher saying to a child “Very well done” - the second version is a praise among equals. The word “Thanks” makes all the difference.

It’s usually better not to sound like a teacher teaching kids. Use the “Thanks” whenever possible!
