There is a lot of material out there written about how to build rapport.
Some methodologies claim to teach you how to develop “instant rapport” with clients, while others teach mirroring techniques to allow for greater influence.
We teach neither of these methodologies. In fact, we think it’s time for a reality check.
First of all, there is no such thing as “instant rapport”. By definition, rapport is the deepest level of relationship between two individuals, that involves sharing common ground, and is established when harmony and accord is reached between the two parties. The two don’t have to agree on every issue, but they will have a mutual respect and understanding of the other person’s viewpoint.
With this as the true definition of rapport, do you really think this can be established instantly? Of course not! Rapport takes time and effort to establish.

The second claim that some make is that by learning a few surface level mimicking techniques, you will be able to establish rapport and influence with clients and workplace colleagues. However, we find this to be not only ineffective, but a dangerous technique that often will backfire. We find it to be nothing more than manipulation that results in lost clients.
Rapport is not something that just “happens” with everyone. Learning how to build rapport is a skill-set that takes time to master. However, the investment put into this skill-set gives great rewards in both personal and professional settings.
