It is necessary not only that circumstances to change, but to support people in their development. Appreciation is an important soul food.

How can it be that in truly blessed Germany the number of mental illnesses increases from year to year? And I'm talking about adult people who are able to look after themselves and show the red card to an unhealthy external pressure.

We need recognition Feedback and social inclusion. Because this makes us strong and motivates us. Appreciation is a basic need, like eating and drinking. It says something about our inner attitude in which we treat ourselves and others with respect. Showing interest in others again through affection and friendliness.

Only those who find themselves valuable can help others

Why are we doing this so hard? Because we can not give what we do not feel ourselves. Without self-esteem, there is no appreciation. Because self-worth never means self-abandonment.

Anyone who believes that they are not valuable is also not in a position to truly value themselves and others. Instead, envy and resentment arise, which unfortunately have taken a high priority in our society. It pays off to work on your own self-esteem and thereby become happier and happier.

The four forms of appreciation

It is important first to distinguish one's own personal appreciation and appreciation of an external institution, behavior and personality. Experts even distinguish four different forms:

  1. The emotional appreciation that I focus on is expressed through active listening, polite language, and friendly gestures.
  2. Experts are talking about the value of informa- tion when information is passed on at an early stage and decisions are made.
  3. For example, if we receive confirmation, recognition, and constructive and fair criticism, it is an appreciative appreciation.
  4. And last but not least, the practical appreciation that is expressed through the support that we experience from others. Let's delve a little deeper into the emotional appreciation of ourselves and how employees and managers in companies deal with each other.

Personal emotional appreciation

To activate past experiences, positive as well as negative, as power resources, regardless of an assessment of the current life or work situation. According to neuroscientific findings, emotionality involves activating enormous resources of one's own personality.

Put simply: identification with the current private life situation and professional fulfillment generates strong mental and physical performance. This comes equally to man as to that Company benefit. The opposite can lead to various impairments up to illnesses as well as internal resignation in professional requirements.

Emotional appreciation in the company

The economic one Objective of a company is Turnover to generate. However, the Implementation usually not possible without human effort. Every manager and every employee therefore stands for something profitable Capital of a business. Regardless of the position in the company, every employee has enormous potential in different areas.
