You can’t remember everything, but at least remember people’s names. Repeating their names during the conversation is a good memory reinforcement. Also, listen with interest, pay attention, engage and be empathetic.
Don’t: check your cell phone or look around the room to see if someone more important is there during a conversation.
Keep yourself informed and speak with conviction. Use words like “I am sure” vs. tentative words like “I think, I hope and I feel.” Use humor, even if it is self-deprecating.
Don’t: Confuse humor with bad joke telling. And don’t overdo on the self-deprecation to the point you push yourself out of the conversation that it takes away from who you are.
Like yourself. It’s much easier for others to like you if you like yourself. Be optimistic, enthusiastic, comfortable with who you are and consistent.
Don’t: Trot out all your issues or you risk pushing people away. We all have problems, but compartmentalize them, park them in a corner and bring them out for close friends and family.
