Do you ever wonder what is the best way to introduce yourself to others the first time you meet them? Once you have done the traditional shaking of hands, what’s next? In business we are meeting potential clients every single day and it is important to know how to keep the communication.  Our Corporate Partner member Dale Carnegie Training shares with use five simple tips to remember:

 Names are a Valuable Key - “Remember that a person’s name is to that person the sweetest and most important sounds in any language.”

  1. Become Interested in the Other Person - “Be a good listener. Encourage others to talk about themselves.”
  2. Speak in a Friendly Tone - “Actions speak louder than words, and a smile says, ‘I like you. You make me happy. I am glad to see you.'”
  3. Make the Person Feel Important - “People will cherish your words and treasure them and repeat them years after you have forgotten them.”
  4. Arouse in the Other Person an Eager Want - “First, arouse in the other person an eager want. He who can do this has the whole world with him. He cannot walks a lonely way.”
