When meeting people for the first time.
People love when others listen to what they have to say. It makes them feel important. When you take the time to listen to someone else, even though you may disagree with what they’re saying, you make that person feel better about themselves.
And this can help you make a new friend or connection. This can help you on your path to success in the future as you never know when you may need to know someone in a certain field or area of study. This is networking.
And you know what? Expanding your network is always a good idea.
