Communicate like you know how!
By words alone?
What is it about those people who always seem to get along so easily with every one they meet?
Or that person who knows just what to say and when?
Why are they so easy to be around?
Could they be using mostly non verbal Super Powers?
If so, do you want to know what it is and how to use it?
"Education is the key to unlock the golden door of freedom." -George Washington Carver
Communication is 93% NOT words!
It's all about Rapport
Be the person everyone one wants to be around! Be in RAPPORT! Rapport is a funny word that roughly means harmony in a relationship. We often have Rapport naturally with people we like or are interested in. We are often out of Rapport when aren't getting along with them. What if you could be in Rapport with anyone at anytime?
Be the very best listener. Back tracking in a conversation is a tool for the advanced conversationalist. It requires active listening. By artfully recognizing and repeating specific words you are perceived as someone that is truly listening and understands clearly what is being said to you. People often feel heard and cared about with this method.
Be a mind reader...or at least seem like you are! Know how to read all the signs in a conversation. Facial expressions, skin tone changes, eye positions, vocal tone and speed, plus many more! These are all clear signs of what's actually going on in a person's mind. Understanding how to use them helps you adjust minute by minute for the most effective and comfortable conversations. People will think you are reading their mind!
Matching and Mirroring
Be the person that everyone feels comfortable with. It's all about body language, tone and cadence! Knowing how to match, pace, lead and mirror in these areas creates an instant rapport in any conversation. If you want to be the easiest person in the room to talk to, learn this small shift with huge results.
Know Your Core Message
Be the expert in your field. Know how to chunk down what you want people to know about you or what you do into a laser pointed core message. This is essential for professionals! Come across with a clear, confident, knowledgable few sentences that let your client know you are the expert they need. A clear message allows you to build a solid business around your core ideals.
Be in the right place at the right time. Know how your physical location in a conversation can send the right or the wrong message. Understand how you affect anyone interacting with you by where you choose to sit, stand, or be. This small shift can be the difference in a highly successful interaction or one that flops.
Be the person who fits in wherever they go. Know how to present yourself to the people your presenting to! Know how to be a match to how you want to be perceived in any moment. There's true power in presentation!
And the list goes on...
These are just a few of the tools in the Communications Superpower tool kit!
