#2. Become a master at remembering people’s names

  • We all know remembering names is important, yet most people admit to being terrible at it.

#3. Focus on leaving a memorable last impression

  • Most people worry so much about how they are going to start a conversation they forget how memorable a strong ending can be.

#4. Show interest in small talk

  • Most people won’t open up to you about the big things in their lives if you don’t express interest in their little day-to-day happenings.
  • Ask people about their kids. Ask them how their job is going. Keep up-to-date with your local sports teams. Hell, even stop to talk to the woman at your corner deli about the weather.
  • These conversations may be boring, but they matter. And when done consistently they open the door for real talk to eventually take place.

#5. Master a few conversation starters

  • “I’m writing an article about career advice. What’s your best tip?” or “I’m curious, do you think following your passion is good advice or terrible?” 
  • These questions will get people talking about their experiences, careers, and interests and it’s hard not to like someone who does that.

  • Sometimes the best way to accomplish this is by simply keeping your mouth shut and focusing solely on being there for people around you.
  • Lean in when you sense something means a great deal to the person you are speaking with.
