5 ways to instantly connect with anyone you meet
- When listening to someone, your eyes should never look away for longer than a few seconds.
- Don’t relate everything to you. If you are in a conversation and someone is talking, let them have the stage.
- Watch for filler comments such as “yeah,” “oh cool,” “gotcha,” “interesting,” etc.
- Don’t pretend like you know everything
- If you are someone who gets nervous or freezes up during conversations, plan your questions in advance.
