Be empathetic.

Ask yourself what it is the other person really wants in life, and use that understanding to motivate.

Be sincere.

Do not promise anything you can’t deliver.

Offer praise.

Praise the slightest improvement and praise every improvement.

Praise before criticism.

It is always more comfortable to hear something unpleasant about ourselves after we have heard some praise about our good points.
