Make a good initial impression


  1. Be mindful of the impression you are making.
    Pay close attention to your demeanor, body language, and communication style to ensure you are presenting yourself in a positive and approachable manner.
  2. Set the right tone.
    Speak in a friendly and warm manner, as if you are already friends, rather than adopting a formal or distant approach.
  3. Look for commonalities.
    Ask open-ended questions about their interests, hobbies, or experiences. Listen actively and look for shared experiences or viewpoints that you can relate to.
  4. Mirror their behavior.
    Subtly match certain aspects of the other person's behavior, such as their body language, tone of voice, and communication style. Use mirroring as a means to convey shared values and the potential for a deeper connection.
  5. Deepen the conversation.
    Ask follow-up questions that delve deeper into their interests or experiences. Share personal stories or thoughts that relate to the topic, fostering a deeper level of conversation.
