Emma Serlin, director and founder of the London Speech Workshop and author of the upcoming Concise Advice title ‘The Connection Book’ shared with us her top tips to make connections with people easily through communications.
1) Look at people when they are speaking. Where you direct your eyes shows where you direct your attention. If someone feels attended to, this is the first step of connecting.
2) When you speak deliver your idea or words to your audience or listener. Literally look at them on the final few words of your thought. This shows them that you care about them, and that they matter in the communication dynamic. Its crucial for connecting to make the listener feel important.
