Raleigh CEC: Acknowledgment vs. Encouragement - 
When to Use Them
Thursday, April 4, 2019

4:30 pm - 6:00 pm

How and when you use acknowledgment and encouragement can have an important impact on coaching your organizational and private clients. So, whether you are in a rah-rah session to recognize and uplift your clients or in a tough conversation to highlight the blind spots—what gets talked about and how it gets talked about can determine the success of the outcome. 

One can similarly express acknowledgment and encouragement, however, they are different. Most likely this can be in a strategically significant way. Encouragement is primarily focused on future whereas acknowledgment is mostly past-oriented.

In this Cutting Edge Conversation, we will explore:

  • How does earning acknowledgment and encouragement make big differences behaviorally, motivationally, sociologically, economically and morally?
  • What impacts do both earned and non-earned acknowledgment have?
  • What impacts do both earned and non-earned encouragement have?
