After reading the, ‘How to Talk to Anyone, Anytime, Anywhere’ by Chris Widener, I thought it proper to drop the insights on my blog for future reference and visitor reflection.
Don’t Be Interesting, Be Interested
- It’s not about how interesting you are to the client, colleague, or stranger.
- Ask questions and be genuinely interested in their lives, hobbies, and families.
Find Something with Which You Connect
Find something that you have in common. Inquisitive questions will eventually lead to something you have in common.
Go In That Direction
Continue to go in that direction with the connection topic to continue to build rapport.
