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.

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.

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

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
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.
