Areavoices: The power of a compliment

I have been witness to a weird phenomena in the last year; my clients are crying. No it is not because I am making them throw away a prized possession. It is because I am giving them a sincere compliment. Then it dawned on me this week: women do not know how to receive a compliment.

I have been witness to a weird phenomena in the last year; my clients are crying. No it is not because I am making them throw away a prized possession. It is because I am giving them a sincere compliment. Then it dawned on me this week: women do not know how to receive a compliment. Usually when I am called to come in and help, it is at a point where my clients are at their most vulnerable. They know they need help. They know they can’t do it alone. They know that their disorganization is not going to get better without some help. I always admire them in their willingness to call me and have me come into their home or office.
