  • Smile at the right time to show genuineness.
  • A delayed smile make people realize that the smile was genuinely for them and it took some time for you to register their face.

  • Hold your gaze as much as possible.
  • A good hack to have a proper eye contact is to trying to notice their eye color.
  • After finishing the conversation, hold the eye contact for some more time.

“Watch your posture whenever you walk through a doorway. Hold your head high, your shoulders back, and your torso out. This will convey confidence and command respect.”

  • Mirroring the person you're talking to make them like you and give them a feeling there are lot of things in common between you.
  • Pretend that the person you are meeting is an old friend. 

  • The Whazat Technique: Ask questions (About something unusual ideally for a complete stranger) to start a conversation.
  • Never just give a naked introduction. Share something interesting about the person.
  • Be a word detective. Listen to clues and what the other person is telling...

  • Use people’s names frequently.
  • Compliment people behind their back.
  • Echo the emotion of someone who is upset and avoid using facts.
