How can you present yourself well and so that you can develop a meaningful connection in the mind of the listener? How to develop the good impression so that people remember your words and meet you again with full excitement?
The first step to reframe yourself is to improve the concept of networking. At the next level, you need to remind yourself that it’s not only about having a chit-chat, it’s about making the connection. Rather than talking on small topics tap into the science of good connection.
Here are the 5 strategies that guarantee people will remember after meeting you.
1. TO EASY TO LISTEN TO
According to the research, conversation killer includes gossips, judgments, negativity, complaining, exaggeration, accusations and many other related kinds of stuff. Such conversations are hard to listen. The 4 powerful cornerstones of the good and memorable conversation are HAIL:
- HONESTY- being clear and straight away.
- AUTHENTICITY- being yourself.
- INTEGRITY- actually doing what you say you will and,
- LOVE- wishing people well.
2. ENCOURAGE SELF-DISCLOSURE
It is really a common sense that we like to talk about ourself, but there is actually a chemical reaction which happens inside us which is thus associated with self-disclosure. Self-disclosure is basically associated with dopamine at the center of the brain which is the same region that responds to food and money.
To create an environment that may invite people to talk about themselves.
The best example is instead of asking people how was your week, ask what are the highlights of the week. This will prevent short one-word answer (like it was good). Instead, it will have a better impact, which may lead the person to open up more.
3. ASK FOR STORIES, NOT FOR ANSWERS
Sharing stories create a connection and stimulate an emotional memory which links you to that particular situation and also you get a better knowledge and a meaningful experience about the situation. This helps you get more information about that person and situation.
4. SKIP THE SMALL TALKS
Research shows that talking about certain issues can actually make us happier than talking on the small topics in the conversation. Basically, if someone asks you a question give a detailed explanation which leads the explanation to a different level and thus increases the memorizing power of the person.
5. USE YOUR INSTRUMENTS TO ITS BEST CAPACITY
You should have the power to have a meaningful conversation which doesn’t have to do with what you have to say, but also matters how you say it. You should keep in mind that you should speak slower and, quieter, which actually attracts people into the conversation. Also, don’t get scared to fill the sentence with ”umm” and ”ahs”.
