Thank you very much for your answer=)

Everybody likes a compliment.Everyone has a carving to be appreciated.
Good compliment will change a man's life itself.No one ready to give me a compliment.

hi there,
Is there another phrase of saying "You’re being modest"? (informal).

It was a good vibe and I really enjoyed that part of the video. I bet that is more power for me to build a confident conversation.
Now I'm just listening for the purpose to understand. The final step is speaking fluently English. practice makes perfect ! 

i think the guy says many things, until You’re a great manager, if enough

In my opinion, is not difficult to pay someone a compliment because if somebody had done something very well, we would express (him or her) our admiration or our recognition. When a person is hard-working and do something very well, or is a winner, is important to appreciate that and say to that person our satisfaction.
I accept a compliment with a smile and it make me very happy.
The video for me shows a lot of flatteries. I think the man is flirting.
