How to Connect in Business in 90 Seconds or Less shows there’s an order and a process to connecting with others: First you establish trust with the basic instincts, then you establish rapport with the personality. What results is a relationship, and every relationship holds almost infinite possibilities.

How does speaker Nicholas Boothman know this? From studying the unconscious strategies of more than 700 people who are able to connect, neutralize the fight or flight response, start to engender trust and respect, find common ground and begin to articulate their business ideas in way that they will get acted on—in 90 seconds or less.

How to Make People Like You in 90 Seconds or Less is about establishing rapport – that stage between meeting and communicating. Nicholas shows how to subtly synchronize attitude, body language, and voice tone so that you instantly and imperceptibly become someone the other person likes.

Reinforcing these easy-to-learn skills Nick demonstrates how to read the other person’s sensory preferences – most of us are visual, some are kinesthetic, and a minority are auditory. So when you say “I see what you mean” to a visual person or “I get it” to a kinesthetic person or “I hear you” to an auditory you’re really speaking their language.

Along the way the speech covers attitude, words that open a conversation and words that shut it down, eye cues, finding common ground and more.

To make people like you in 90 seconds or less you’ve got to grab their attention and begin to build rapport in two seconds flat. That’s how long it takes people to decide whether or not they like you.
