NLP: Making Friends – Building Rapport With Others

If you would like to understand people better and build friendships - then this course is for you. Successful communication with others depends largely on our ability to establish and maintain rapport. NLP rapport is the ability to understand how other people view their world. When we are in rapport with others and can join them in their view of the world we can build communication with them.

For anyone who wants to build better relationships with others. Friendliness and rapport skills are also useful for work, whether you are a teacher, a sales person, or simply want to ask someone for a date, or seeking to influence others. People are more likely to listen to someone they have built rapport with. Enthusiasm and curiosity is the key to building relationships. No previous knowledge is required.
