COMMUNICATION TIP #92
Will he or won’t he? Sabotaging our first impression:
I held my breath after the new assistant pastor enthusiastically began his talk with “Good morning” and received a much quieter response.
This is where so many speakers insult their audiences by saying something like, “Now you can do better than that!” And then they repeat, “Good morning.”
Not this young man. Without hesitating, he kept smiling and began his message. He even complimented the audience within the first couple of minutes.
My advice: Strive to connect and not to alienate.
