Benefits of Rapport Building

Rapport is a key to connecting with people, harmonious relationships, building trust, influencing and persuading people, effective collaboration, and relationship marketing.





Rapport is essentially meeting individuals in their model of the world. This happens through empathizing, matching the accessing cues from words, eye movements and body language.

Having rapport does not mean that you have to agree, but that you understand where the other person or people are coming from.    

  Empathy quotes how to understand people Vadim Kotelnikov Dennis father and son




Creating Rapport

To create rapport, it is important to empathize with, listen to emotions of, understand perceptions of, adapt to, mirror, match, and pace the person or persons with whom you are communicating or collaborating. In order to do so, it is important for you to open your sensory channels and engage all your senses.

To build wonderful relationships,
be a shawl of empathy, a shower of joy,
and a well of inspiration.
