Trusting loudly simply means letting others know that you are depending on them and is a way of expressing appreciation and gratitude. Being open with others, being clear that someone is important to you, that their coming through is valued is motivational. We all want to feel important and significant, letting folks know in advance that they truly do make a difference can influence others’ behavior in a positive way.
Indeed, making a daily practice of letting others know that they matter is quite the compliment. Acknowledging others, recognizing their contribution is powerful praise, providing energizing encouragement.
