End small talk.

Its comfortable but leads to nothing interesting.

Use small talk to build initial rapport. But don’t let it last longer than a minute or two.

Get to difficult questions. Share your story. Ask about their story.

You’ll come away with a deeper connection. A new relationship.

Next time you find yourself saying “That weather huh?”, make the next question interesting. Ask “whats worrying you?”.

And if you don’t feel comfortable, start by sharing your own story. Be vulnerable. Share what is on your mind. It will encourage others to do the same.

You’ll build better relationships.
