Interested in building a relationship with someone? Really want to network? Then stop talking.
I say this to myself every time I am talking to someone. My mind wants to open my mouth and share about myself and my coolness. But in reality I need to just stop and listen I need to pay attention to the other person and focus on what they are saying. If I truly care about building the relationship then I need to truly care about what they are saying.
Do not try and answer them do not try and respond with your own opinions just listen. Try this the next time your networking or the next time your meeting a friend or a partner. I promise you will create a deeper connection if you …. stop talking.
