How to develop Social skills…

Here is the simple yet very effective and proven methods of developing social skills:

— Learn people’s name :- We feel really good if in the second meeting people remember our name and address us with our name. Remembering the name of the person is very important thing.

— Encourage others to talk about themselves:- When you speak, you say what you know, but when you listen you will definitely learn something new.

— Interrupt less:- The best appreciation we can give a person is ‘attentive and interesting listening’. So be a Good Listener.

— Ask questions where people can answer much more than simple “Yes” or “No”

— listen with intent to learn and understand:- we often listen to reply not to understand, but if we listen to understand we can develop good relationship.
