The Power of Love & Appreciation

1602+HeartAs part of our ongoing consumer research, we track consumer attitudes across a number of different dimensions. With Valentine’s Day coming up this Sunday, I decided to analyze our Q1 2016 survey of 10,000 U.S. consumers and examine responses to the question: “To what degree do you agree with the statement: I feel loved and appreciated.”

In the chart below, I compared “feeling loved and appreciated” with other consumer attitudes. Normally I provide commentary on the data we display. In this case, however, I just want you to look at the chart and think about your relationships with other people.


The bottom line: I hope that you feel, and make others feel, loved and appreciated

I'm an experience (XM) management catalyst; helping organizations improve results by engaging the hearts and minds of their employees, customers, and partners. I enjoy researching and speaking about leading-edge XM topics. I lead the Qualtrics XM Institute, which is the world's best job. We're igniting a global community of XM Professionals who are inspired and empowered to radically improve the human experience. To achieve this goal, my team focuses on thought leadership, training, and community building. My work is driven by a set of fundamental beliefs: 1) Everything starts and ends with human beings, so you need to understand how people think, feel, and behave; 2) XM is a discipline that needs to be woven throughout an organization's entire operating fabric; and 3) Building the XM discipline requires a combination of culture, competency, and technology.
