The Dynamics of Rapport: Using Neurolinguistics to Improve Communication
Duration: 60 minutes
Have you ever felt like you ?hit it off? with someone ? maybe even after knowing him or her for just a short period of time or discovering that you have very little in common with that person? Still, you just sensed you would get along, despite the reasons why you shouldn?t.
Now turn it around. A friend introduces you to someone they just know you?ll love. Or you meet someone that you expect to like immediately. Yet you?re surprised when you dislike them right off the bat ? or you?re indifferent to that person, at best.
So what's going on and why does this phenomenon happen to all of us? Rapport.
Join us for a free webinar, The Dynamics of Rapport: Using Neurolinguistics to Improve Communication. Jim Eicher, neurolinguistics expert and author of the Neurolinguistic Communication Profile assessment, will lead you through the fascinating and dynamic world of rapport. He?ll explore every phase, from developing rapport to turning resistance into irresistibility.
This webinar will show you how to:
- Identify the sensory-based preferences of others (e.g., visual, auditory and tactile)
Pay attention to both the big picture as well as the small details when communicating with others
Develop flexibility to improve communication with others
Anticipate, address, and eliminate conflict ? before it occurs
Listen to others to get a better understanding of who they are and what they want
