Have questions you'd like us to answer?

1. Listen actively:
One of the best ways to connect with people is to listen to what they have to say. This means hearing them out, asking follow-up questions, and really understanding their perspective.

2. Be you:
Don't try to be someone you're not. Easier said than done, I know. Show your true self, share your experiences, and be vulnerable. People are more likely to connect with you when they see the real you.

3. Find common ground:
Look for shared interests or experiences and use that as a starting point for conversation. It can help break down any barriers and create a genuine connection.

4. Express empathy:
Try to put yourself in the other person's shoes. Understand their emotions and feelings and let them know that you care.

5. Share encouraging feedback:
Everyone likes to feel appreciated and valued. Take the time to offer genuine acknowledgement and encouragement to others.

6. Be present:
Give your full attention to the person you're talking to. Avoid distractions and make eye contact. Let them know that they have your full focus.

7. Follow up:
After you've had an initial conversation, follow up with the person to build on the connection. You could send them an email or message, offer to meet up again, or simply check in on how they're doing.
