Make a good initial impression
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
