What’s the biggest and strong characteristic required to build the business relationship? Charisma is secondary, but effective communication is extremely important for the development of an organization. The growth of rapport involves matching yourself with another person because starting a conversation with a stranger would be stressful at times. It could be hard to maintain the body language and mannerism with strangers due to a nervous breakdown. It’s highly possible to save yourself from the little embarrassment and start improvising your communication skills. Try to be calm and relaxed while having a conversation with newer people and your body language will automatically improve. Breaking the Ice Don’t jump onto the concerned topic immediately . Always use light topics as conversation starter such as weather, trending news etc. Never make a mistake of asking direct questions to the other person or talking too much about yourself. Listen to them patiently to share common experiences. Add your sense of humor wherever necessary but be careful, your jokes shouldn’t hurt anyone’s emotions. Make an eye contact while talking. Be empathetic. Show that you can see things from their perspective. Building rapport means finding the similarities and empathy plays a major role in this. However, make sure that in order to learn more about the other person, he is not bombarded with too many questions, especially during the initial conversations. Why is rapport important? The sympathetic relationship or understanding defines the word “rapport.” It’s all about making a meaningful and strong connection with respect and trust. We all know that it is easy to make connections with like-minded people. The challenge is to create a bond with those who are different from yourself, with different beliefs and opinion. Rapport helps in achieving desired goals easily that saves both money and time. Analyzing Rapport With whom do you already enjoy rapport? How did you maintain that rapport? What signals pass between you? It could be you are both major fans of the same team, which bonds you. It could even be an underlying sexual tension in a platonic relationship. Think of someone with whom you feel no rapport. What signals are there that tell you there is no rapport between you? Can you analyze what is preventing you from having rapport with that person? Consider the rapport you already enjoy in the first example. Consider how you can behave differently with that person with whom you do not (yet) enjoy a feeling of rapport. You may well feel the person you already enjoy rapport with is just more your type and easier to get on with, but by being prepared to change your attitudes and behaviour you may surprise yourself by building rapport. This is where the real effort is involved. No effort is required with those we naturally get along with and rapport is already there. The challenge lies where rapport must be developed with someone. It’s important that you find out what is important to people, and get to know them if you wish to build rapport. Building Rapport There are various ways to build the rapport such as: • Be yourself • Spend time with whom you feel comfortable whether it’s work or leisure time • Improv your talks, behavior, and looks • Be clear about your values • Possess the skills and talent • Build Rapport with Key Skills Keep an eye on your role models and observe them carefully, such as how they talk, their body language, hand gestures etc. Have a genuine interest to find out what’s essential for the other person and understand them before you want others to understand your words.

Brush up your speech, body language, and pick words that work together. If you lack confidence then no one can pay attention to or listen to your speech though it’s important. It’s not always what you talk, but the way you carry yourself matters. Never ever disagree about other’s opinions and thoughts because it could pull their confidence level down. Well, you don’t have to agree with what everything other’s tells, but you need to handle them treating with respect. Everyone has different opinions about each and every area, your work is to listen and work which thing works for a better result. In business, you can never agree or disagree with certain subjects. Consider everything and hit the arrow in the working direction. Hold a charismatic personality In order to influence people and remember that is what charismatic people do, you must be prepared to listen to people, understand them, and have great patience while you ae doing so. You influence and lead someone when you gradually persuade someone to do some things in a different way.
