A simple truth about humans

A simple truth about humans

While we are all wired for connection, we care deeply about ourselves, we want to feel important, and we like and trust familiar things.

These ideas are the basic foundation for building rapport with just about anyone.

Avoiding discomfort

Avoiding discomfort

The first step in the process of developing great rapport and having great conversations is letting the other person know that there is an end in sight, and it is really close.

When you approach someone to start a conversation most people assess the situation for threat before anything else. Discomfort in any conversation with a stranger happens because there is no end in sight.

Look accommodating

Look accommodating

The best nonverbal technique you can use to look more accommodating is to smile.

You could even match the other person’s posture, speech, etc. because our subconscious naturally picks up on and likes familiarity.

Speak slowly

Speak slowly

If you want to sound more credible, once you begin speaking, speak slowly.

People who speak fast are usually very excited about what they are talking about. It could also mean you know your subject. Speaking slowly, however, gives you more credibility.

Just listen

Just listen

Listening is the simplest way to validate others. You don’t need to tell your story; just encourage them to keep telling theirs. Make them feel important.

For most of us, our natural reaction is to interrupt, but this means that we are never fully present when someone is talking.

Encourage others

Encourage others

A great conversationalist encourages others to talk about themselves.

Use the ‘RASA’ approach: receive, appreciate, summarise and ask. Also, be curious and ask open-ended questions.

First impressions

First impressions

You’ll never get a second chance to make a great first impression with people you meet. So with the few minutes to spare to get someone on your side, make the most it. And always remember, the right attitude is everything.

Make sure the other person walks away better for having met you.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Shankul Varada

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Ghazala Begum
