Yesterday I covered how to improve your relationships with your partner or spouse. Today I'm going to cover "public" relationships (for lack of a better word).
How to improve your People Skills
If you're happy and have an upbeat attitude, people will be more drawn to you.
Show that you care about others. Appreciate and care about others and they'll likely return the favor and everyone starts giving their best work.
3. Be Considerate
Take note of what's happening in other's lives. Look people in the eye when you speak to them, and use their names.
Listening shows that you're paying attention to another’s perspective. Using your own words, repeat what they said. When you do this, you’ll know that you’ve heard them right and they’ll know they're being heard.
5. Make them Laugh
Humor can be a great way to break down barriers. Just stay away from inappropriate terms and serious subjects.
6. Be Empathetic
Put yourself in their shoes and envision the situation from their side. What may seem like the obvious answer to you might have totally different implications to someone else.
7. Don't Whine
If you constantly whine about things, your negativity will push people away from you. If you have something legit to complain about, go direct to the source and discuss it with them there.
8. Read Body Language
Deaf people know that 3/4th of the message is expressed in facial and body language. Learn how to read other's body language and interpret it to match what they're saying. Watch your own body language as well.
9. Remember Names
Remember people's names and say them when you meet them again. People will be impressed that you remember them.
You'll be able to do all the above and interact better when you're relaxed. Also being relaxed yourself will help others around you relax too.
