Encouraging means giving support to someone to inspire confidence and hope.

When encouraging someone, you may provide them with positive feedback, and focus on their efforts, abilities, and the small steps of improvements which they have already experienced.

Being encouraging is a very important quality that helps to build others up and strengthens your relationships with others. The recipient of encouragement may experience increased confidence, motivation, and happiness. Encouragement goes hand-in-hand with respect and dignity, and will benefit your sense of support, connection, belonging, and community.
