  The 7 Principles of BUILDING RAPPORT


Principle # 1 - Develop an Attractive Personality

 * People are attracted to people who are attractive. Adopt a Positive Self Image & Mindset .
 * Display Confidence, Leadership, Passion, Kindness, Humility, Emotional Control and a Sense of Purpose

Principle # 2 - Become Genuinely Interested in Other People

 * Focus on the other person and their interests. Learn and apply the twelve facets of ‘Empathy’ .
 * Observe rather than judge, establish common ground and values; always think the best of others.

Principle # 3 - Aim to Meet the Other's ‘Crucial Needs’

 * Rapport will only occur when both parties conclude consciously or unconsciously that their ‘Crucial Needs’ for Security, Significance & Self-Worth are being met.
 * Aim to make the other person feel ‘Loved’ ‘Important’ & ‘Valued’ , whatever the situation. 

Principle # 4 - Become an Excellent Communicator
