Think about sprinkling these phrases into your daily conversations:
1.) Thank You: Common Courtesy? Sure. But tell me this: When was the last time you forgot or rejected gratitude. Whether given in private or public, a sincere “thanks” creates goodwill. People are always happier doing a favor than taking an order.
2.) I trust your Judgment: Translation: “You have my permission. Now, go make it happen”. It feels pretty good to hear that, doesn’t. And I bet you’d do almost anything to please someone who makes you feel that way.
3.) Tell me more :” I’m all ears. It’s the ultimate conversation starter! When you signal that you’re open and intrigued, the other party will respond in kind. Use phrases like” What do you think” or “What would you do”, by asking these questions you are acknowledging their expert.
