How to Respond to a Compliment

When someone pays you a compliment, it should brighten your day! Often we respond to compliments with negative statements. For example: “Wow, you did a great job!” may be replied to with “No, it really isn’t that good”. If a person gives you a compliment, that should be seen as a positive truth! The correct way to respond is to keep it short and simple and just say “Thanks!”. Here’s how:

  • Acknowledge a compliment by saying “Thanks!”
  • Appreciate it
  • Express how it made you feel
    “You are very kind.”
    “Thank you! That’s nice of you. That really means a lot.”
