Don't be a star, be a sun!

Speak from your soul, and every soul will open up, understand, and respond.

You don't need to shout to be heard. Sincere hearts are listened to and heard even when they are silent.

Connect with Senses

"To handle yourself, use your head; to handle others, use your heart." ~ Donald Laird





People have different preferred ways of thinking and communicating their experiences some express themselves in pictures, others talk about how things sound to them, and others speak about how things feel. If you want to connect with them, you have to figure out which sense they favor.

To work effectively with people, take their preferred style of interaction and decision-making into account. Many misunderstandings derive from differences in style. For example, "Perceivers" may see "Judgers" as unwilling to take the time to explore creative options. Conversely, "Judgers" can become irritated by "Perceivers" who may stray from the agenda...

Self-irony is an effective way of connecting with people.

Some performing artists employ self-irony to earn sympathy of their spectators (examples).

Eye Contact

"The cheapest, most effective way to connect with people is to look them into the eye." ~ Nicholas Boothman

Eye is one of the most important nonverbal channels you have for communication and connecting with other people.





Eyes are not only the "window to the soul", they also answer the critical questions when you are trying to connect:

▪ Is s/he paying attention to what I'm saying?

▪ Does this person find me attractive?

▪ Does this person like me?... More




Your People Skills

If you really want to understand someone, free yourself from your ego and become the person you want to understand.

If you want your message to hit the target, make the right adjustment to the wind.
