A Sincere Compliment

Part 6 of the 7 part series, “7 Ways to Build Rapport Quickly”

We all like to receive compliments, but keep it sincere.

The Three B’s of giving a compliment are the same as The Three B’s of an Army briefing.  

The Three B’s are:

Be brief
Be brilliant
Be gone

Keep it short and hard hitting.

For a man, it's "Great tie,” or “Great suit.”

For a woman, “Great dress,” or “Great color.” Or, if you must ask permission, “May I pay you compliment?”  Then-- pay that compliment.
