Increase Your Likeability Factor with Tips from CLE Solutions

In April 10, 2015

Why are some people so much more likeable or credible than others? It’s all in the way they behave and present themselves. CLE Solutions team has been on a mission to take note of what gives people an edge when it comes being beloved.

One of the first things you’ll notice about likeable people is that they are punctual. They value other people’s time and find it rude to keep them waiting. While some delays are impossible, if you’re constantly running late, try budgeting more time. It will make a difference, especially for first meetings.

Honesty and keeping your word are two other essential traits that you have to exhibit in order to be appreciated by others. Don’t make promises you know you can’t keep. Others will find you unreliable. Be realistic in what you commit to do. Don’t lie. While you may be able to maintain a charade for a short period of time, once a lie is exposed, your integrity is shot. People want to be in business with someone they can trust. If you lose that trust, it’s nearly impossible to regain.

You’re human, which means you’ll make mistakes. When you do, our team at CLE Solutions recommends that you admit it and apologize quickly. Never try to deflect blame or excuse the error. Try to find a mutually agreeable solution.

Finally, avoid using foul language. It diminishes the dignity of both you and the person to whom you’re speaking. Find a way to express your thoughts with any of the other millions of words available. If you can say it with a smile, that’s even better. Perhaps as much as honesty, punctuality, and accountability, a smile can not only make you appear more likeable, it can make someone else’s day.
