Be Cordial

Cordial is the word of the day. Effective Communication is a contact sport. To get a favorable exchange of information: facts, beliefs and ideas, you must start with the deep-seated belief that the other person is significant, unique and important. Their opinion counts and is meaningful. They deserve your undivided attention. Listen at a synergistic level. You must be sensitive to their feelings. Being cordial brings rapport, favor and approval with positive results.

The basic ingredients of being cordial are as follows:

  1. A warm natural smile will attract a smile.
  2. A solid handshake; a rare remaining display of emotional contact says, “I appreciate you”.
  3. Eye to eye contact is the secret chamber of your soul.
  4. Encouraging words of appreciation open your heart as you speak.

In your conversations, put into action a cordial attitude.  Be kind, all lives matter.
