Be More Likable

Five Tips to be more likable. These makes sense to me. I've been practicing some elements of this but need to do better. Daniel Goleman in Emotional Intelligence talks about "over learning" or "over practicing" techniques like these so they become second nature. You need these tools during crucial conversations (high stakes/high emotions) and they need to be at-the-ready. So I'm going to need to start practicing these intensely. Folks will probably think I'm nuts. Ah well.

1. Be positive.
2. Control your insecurities.
3. Provide value.
4. Eliminate all judgments.
5. Become a person of conviction.
