Everyone you talk to will be different. Some feel comfortable in high-energy environments and surrounded by people of similar personalities. On the other hand, you will also, at some point, interact with people who are reserved and prefer a slower pace and calmer settings. To be a great communicator, it is important to carefully listen and observe how the people you talk to carry themselves. While confident, outgoing people would feel flattered with a compliment, others with lower self-confidence might feel embarrassed or even offended. So, carefully analyze your conversation partner’s temperament and then “mirror” that attitude back to them. This is an effective networking strategy and can help you gain clients, if done correctly. By mirroring them, you are preventing them from possible feelings of unease, tension, and maybe even threat. When the people you are talking to feel comfortable, they are more inclined to have favorable feelings for you.
