1) HOW TO BE IN THE RIGHT PLACE AT THE RIGHT TIME, ALL THE TIME

In this chapter you learn that being in the right place at the time involves aligning yourself in the Zone’s of Awareness of people. 

 

2) HOW TO START AND HOLD A CONVERSATION WITH ANYONE

In this chapter we explored three ways to begin to handle rejection. Mastering rejection realising that most rejection is not personal, and learning to deal with our nerves, can help us go a long way towards building our confidence to meet more new people. We also explored the different types of questioning that we can use so become better small talkers. It is possible to engage with people of high-level status, such as celebrities, by respecting their space, talking about their latest work, complimenting them from the perspective of how their work has benefited you, and remembering to acknowledge and converse with their companions, too.

 

3) HOW TO STAND OUT FROM THE CROWD

We can increase the likelihood of standing out from the crowd and improve our chances connecting with new people by developing the tone of our voice, our body language, the way we groom, dress and the manner in which we conduct ourselves. In this chapter, we learned that much of our communication is non-verbal so it’s important we develop our many other ways that contribute to what we are ‘saying’. Developing a good honest, smile is not only good for our bodies it helps us to appear happy, confident and comfortable and we may even brighten somebody else’s day.

 

4) HOW TO BE LIKED BY EVERYONE YOU MEET

We learned in this chapter that learning to actively listen helps us to establish a deeper bond with whom we are getting to know. We can prevent losing someone’s interest by refraining from bombarding them with too much information on a subject that purely interests us. Listening carefully to what someone is saying is a skill that we can train ourselves to become better at to become more present and emotionally engaged with the person we are with.

 

5) HOW TO MEET PEOPLE WHO IMPROVE YOUR LIFE

In this chapter the book explains five common characteristics that define great relationships. You learn that Social proof is the social capital someone has, reflected by their social following. Being recommended or connected through the networks of our friends and families by accepting invitations or organising events using our own initiative can present us with a variety of new opportunities from which we can be introduced to new and interesting people. You  learn that one of the biggest changes we can make in our lives is choosing those with which we surround ourselves by.

 

6) HOW TO BE MEMORABLE TO EVERYONE YOU MEET

In chapter 6 you learn seven qualities that we can develop to fascinate people and we learned why we may remember some people and not others. Dunbar’s number suggests we can remember, on average, 150 people which supports the thinking that this was the average ‘tribe size’ of our ancestors. A key to maintaining and developing our longer-term friendships is to develop rapport with people. 

 

7) PUTTING GET NOTICED INTO ACTION IN YOUR SOCIAL LIFE

In chapter 7 you learn that measuring and reflecting on your interactions and establishing what places you have most success meeting people can help you to tune your opportunities and talent. Having a strong sense of purpose in life can enhance your social life. Introducing your friends to each other can be an effective way of helping to widen your social network. Families are lifelines who contribute significantly to our happiness, security and well-being by sharing our values in life.

 

8) PUTTING GET NOTICED INTO ACTION IN YOUR CAREER

Our careers, as entrepreneurs or as employees of someone else’s organisation, are our personal responsibility. We are personally responsible for our own career progression, however, if we’re lucky, an organisation may support that. We can find ways to progress our careers further by adopting new skills, gaining training and qualification, taking on more responsibility and looking for mentors and coaches to teach us ways in which to advance.

 

9) BUILDING COURAGE AND CONFIDENCE

In this chapter we explored a number of solutions that may help you to build confidence such as joining a group and or club, keeping a journal or getting support to improving your health.  We learned that action is our secret weapon and that we can build our confidence through ‘courageous’ action – doing the right thing.
