7. Thrown Down A Challenge
Sometimes, to motivate people, you gotta throw down a challenge ESPECIALLY if they are of the FIRE elemental. Now if you have not heard of the personality elementals (also referred to as colours), I highly recommend you look into that.
They will respect you for it and if the challenge is accepted and accomplished, you relation will go up! (Hint: It’s like a shared frame)
8. Be Sympathetic With Their Ideas & Desires
Yes, I need to say this here. Be sympathetic. Make sure you are listenting to the person. Don’t be misguided or distracted by their delivery of the message (if they stutter, have an accent, incorrect grammar…)
Focus on the message they are trying to deliver to you and BE sympathetic.
9. Become A Good Listener
I heard that many times and many times they fail to say how. Well here is how you become a good listener (Network Marketers pay special attention):
- SHUT UP when they are talking
- Don’t interrupt because if you do, it says that ‘what you are saying to me is not important and here is how it is…’
- Don’t be distracted by noises or visual cues in your environment… maintain visual contact if face-to-face
- BE PRESENT (don’t think about what you are going to feed your cat when you get home or when you get off the phone)
- Don’t solve their problems… they want someone who will listen.
- Nod, every now and then.
- Mirror and match their body language, tonality and pace. Then lead.
- Identify their elemental (so that you can build more rapport)
I hope you get the point here. It is about them not you.
10. Show Respect To Other People’s Opinions
Let’s face it… now everyone in the world will have the same opinions as you. We have to learn to have an open mind. As Jerry Clarks put it, your mind is like a parachute, it needs to be open to work!
Anyways I hope you enjoyed the series and taking action on this!
