Keep it simple : hello how are you? Nice day today? Is the train delayed today?
Give a disengaging warm smile, take on a calm and cheerful tone.
: choose somewhere public, train, tube, platform shopping centre
: ask a question about something around you? Is this train late? Where do you work
: humour always works, this is where the smile comes in
: Be aware of his or her body language and yours. Crossing arms, no no, crossing legs, no no , keep hands steady and show interest.
: you will know how
Tell a story
: keep it funny, short and relevant
No when to close
"have a nice day" "It was nice talking to you", always smile, and breath
When you post : tell me where you rose to the challenge. Talk about your failures as well as victories. Remember failures are not failures, they are learning curves.
This is December's challenge.
Let me know what you think about this challenge?
