For those of you out there who are struggling to get to know people or who struggle after you know people to get engaged with them… Here are some tips to help you get started!
Tip#1 Greet people with a smile. The key pount here is, “greet people”! You can’t possibly get to know anyone that you don’t introduce yourself to.
Tip#2 Be genuine! Nobody likes a phony.
Tip#3 Be transparent! Would you like to get to know someone who you felt had an agenda?
Tip#4 Open up! The only way people are going to feel safe letting you in, is if you let them in first. If you are holding back, other people will feel that and do the same.
Tip#5 Find common ground. Find out what you and the other person have in common and build on that. The only way to do this is you have to ask questions. As long as those questions are not too personal you should be fine.
Tip#6 Be yourself! It takes a whole lot less effort in just being yourself than it does in trying to be someone you’re not. Even in comedy the truth is always funnier than fiction!
I hope this helps. Have a great day!
