What does "appreciate" mean here, according to the below link?

"He believes very strongly that sharing his knowledge is part of his responsibility as a manager, so he does an excellent job of mentoring us. We often discuss challenges we face at work, and he gives us practical advice on how to overcome these difficulties. One thing we really appreciate is that he motivates us to set objectives for ourselves and then helps us stay focused on pursuing those goals. In our weekly meetings, he asks thoughtful questions and provides feedback on our performances. I am very grateful of him, because this has helped me learn whether I am doing a good job."

Did you mean "to recognize the good or special qualities of a person, place, or thing" or "If you appreciate something, for example a piece of music or good food, you like it because you recognize its good qualities."?
