The one thing to do when you meet new people

When you work as a freelance performer, you have to meet tons of new people all the time. You are interviewed over the phone by people you've never met, you have to collaborate with people you've never worked with before, and you are constantly making first impressions.

Here is the one thing to do to ensure a successful start for each new relationship.

Assume Rapport.

Act as if you already have a good relationship with the person. Go into each first meeting as if you were meeting a really good friend. You will avoid over-thinking which would make the conversation stiff and awkward. You will be more spontaneous and relaxed, which will make the other person that way also.

What is YOUR strategy to having a successful first meeting?
