There one thing is one thing you can do to look smarter these holidays….besides sporting geeky eyeglasses. This one thing also makes you more charismatic, more powerful and sexier! It’s your communication secret weapon!
The downside is that a single application is not enough.
What’s the ONE thing that everyone, truly everyone, wants?
(Besides winning the lottery.)
The one thing everyone wants is to be heard. To be listened to. By you.
So the one thing you can do is…..(drum roll)
Give someone your full atention and listen. Not fake listening where you pretend to listen while anxiously preparing your rebuttal speech.
Not fake listening while texting or thinking about all you need to do.
It’s zip-the-lip and open-the-mind listening. You can call it ZTL for short.
I dare you. Try it. When someone is speaking, pause 3 seconds before answering. (Pretend it’s not awkward.)
Practice ZTL with your colleagues, your family members and even the people who annoy you. Everyone will be amazed at your brilliance, your style and your animal magnetism.
(You can thank me later!)
