Humans crave connection and want to be understood.  

Rapport building is an art and skill in communication that’s used daily in all our relationships.

Here are 10 tips to connect and build rapport with others: 

  1. Act approachable. When mingling face-to-face, be aware of how you move and behave. Notice how confident and easy-going folks network. Use body language and gestures that are inviting.

You Guys! I Just Got Promoted!

I am busting at the seams with excitement and pride.

I am now the CEO of my 21-year-old communications company.

On Monday, I woke up as the founder of Get in Front Communications.

By 11 AM, I stopped everything and decided to give myself a long-overdue promotion to CEO.

It took years of me doing the same freakin’ thing…over and over…and expecting different results. (I know…it’s called madness.)

And as the hamster wheel began spinning on Monday, I made a decision. I DECIDED that this is not how a successful CEO operates day-to-day.

I’m getting real here so hold onto your hats.

And please, no judgment. “We teach what we need to learn,” said Jane Fonda.

You see, I’ve spent the past few months searching for the “right” Virtual Assistant.

That's fine, but not at the same time as a...

Still Unsure About Your Messaging?

How to Get EXACTLY What You Want

I was driving in a new area a few days ago and got lost...despite the GPS.

So I approached another human being who was walking his dog and he gave me on-point directions. "Go 2 miles; you'll pass the library and a gas station. At the light, turn left onto Broadway. There's a Walgreens on the corner. Take Broadway about half-a-mile and you'll see signs for the highway on the right. Bear right and then stay left towards Highway 10."

The various places and signs he told me to look for were super helpful in me finding my way. Being specific in our communication is critical, especially when we "talk to ourselves"...you know the internal soundtrack that's constantly looping in our heads. Our brains are wired to be specific. When we write down clear goals, our brains become laser-focused and move us towards what we want.
