This week, I want you to focus on looking people in the eye, especially when you're talking to them. Sometimes when people don’t look me in the eye, I don’t trust them. I'm like, “What's going on with this?”, when I see them looking at everything around us while we’re supposed to be having a conversation. I feel like saying “C’mon, I’m here, and I’m trying to communicate with you!”
Make it a point to look people right in the eye and be very present when you talk to them. Obviously, you don’t want to be intense and ‘in their face’ – they’re going to think you’re nuts! Just look them in the eye and listen – really listen - to what they have to say. Be present and see if your communication isn't enhanced.
And pay attention to your eye contact when you're talking to anyone around you! Your customers, coworkers, family members, friends, the person in the grocery store…they all deserve your attention when you interact with them. Be mindful of your eye contact this week, and see if your communication isn't enhanced.
I bet it will be.
See you next week!
