Summary

Do you feel that there is a clear hierarchy of power in your daily relationships and you feel a bit hopeless or fearful in the low-power position?

Are you sometimes a bit socially awkward and get easily trapped in unpleasant conversations or a strange silence?

Do you simply want to create a great first impression of your personality, be able to hold lighthearted small-talk, and find the right words in any situation?

If you answered yes to at least one of the questions above, then this guide was specifically written to cater to your needs.

Both in the business and in the private world, a good first impression and the ability to hold small-talk are crucial and can provide you with a significant advantage over people who are less skilled.

The reason why the first impression is so powerful is that the human brain judges information sequentially, according to Arthur Dobrin, a researcher in the science of first impressions.

"The exaggerated impact of first impressions is related to the halo effect," he explains scientifically. "That phenomenon whereby the perception of positive qualities in one thing or part gives rise to the perception of similar qualities in related things or in the whole.”

The same thing is not only true about the familiar first impression, but also the ability to start a lighthearted conversation in private or at work, deal with difficult situations, and to stay calm in stressful environments.

If you ever wanted to discuss some challenges with a customer, tell a hard-working employee that he's simply not meeting expectations.

In Conversation Skills Secrets you’ll discover:

  • The four little-known, but absolutely crucial techniques to INSTANTLY handle people better (No matter if it’s at work or in your personal life!)
  • The six exact reasons why people are well liked by others - and how to become this person that seems to get along with nearly anybody!
  • What role empathy, respect for others, and honesty really play in your daily interactions
  • How it is possible to influence and convince people in a positive way, so that both of you will benefit
  • And much, much more!

Even if you feel that you currently completely lack the interpersonal skills to deal with tense and difficult situations or defuse a hot conversation, the extensive research that went into this guide and the practical applications and exercises will develop and cultivate your ability to master any hurdle in a relationship with your family, friends, your spouse, or the boss.

So if you want to finally access the tricks and tips most experts don’t even know and finally unlock your full potential as a confident conversationalist, click “Add to Cart” now!

Great audio!

I wish my ex would listen this. I think all men should listen this. Though it is not only for men but for everyone. Men tend to try to "Solve" issues when we only want someone to talk to. Great audio!
