I am one that enjoys conversation and getting to know people. Introductions, open-ended questions and eye contact, I have found are key in building a repoire. “Hello, how are you doing today? My name is Rhachelle…” These words are uttered from my mouth on a daily basis and the eye contact shows my sincerity.
Relationship building is a form of art, in my opinion, everyone’s style is different and for some it doesn’t come natural. Whatever the case, it is extremely important and can be applied in all aspects of life. “A man that hath friends must shew himself friendly: and there is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother.” Proverbs 18:24
Today my co-worker asked, “What are you doing different?” My reply was, “It’s all in your approach.” So many people have needs that go unmet because no one took the time or didn’t ask the right questions. Get to know people, listen and then act.
