Instant Trust Techniques
Your ability to create instant trust in your relationships is a significant factor in your professional success. Without trust, no one will make a purchase, respect your expertise, carry out your instructions or refer business to you. With trust, you will break down barriers and create relationships of compatibility., a mutually beneficial relationship that will allow you to be privy to others needs.
Creating instant trust allows you to build mutually beneficial relationships that will allow you to be privy to others needs. Trust can never be created with insincerity. You must have a desire to help others and to allow others to attain their goals. You can create trust rapidly and automatically by utilizing the following instant trust techniques.
Trust techniques are something that each of us do automatically when were are with people with whom we are comfortable. The next time you are out with a good friend, pay attention to your movements, as well as theirs. You will find that you unconsciously use the techniques below because you are already in a relationship of trust.
When you begin to learn the techniques and utilize them you will find your communication enhanced and you will find you can begin to create trust rapidly, even with complete strangers.
Create trust in all business environments with these three proven techniques.
Mirroring is a technique that creates a subconscious familiarity between parties and rapidly creates a feeling of affinity. The key factor is your ability to physically mirror the activities of the other party simultaneously, like a mirror, without looking like you are intentionally copying them or making fun of them.
This technique must be used subtly and with respect. As you are speaking to another person, begin to take on some of their physical characteristics. For instance, if they lean forward, you lean forward; if they sit upright, you sit upright. By mirroring with good intentions you create a positive feeling of trust and familiarity.

You need not mirror every move someone makes or it can become silly. Mirror just enough characteristics to make them feel positive and comfortable with you.
Characteristics that you can mirror for building instant trust include body stance, hand movement, facial expressions, eye movements, movement of feet, hands, fingers, weight shifts and breathing rate.
Matching is similar to mirroring in that you take on physical attributes of the individual you are conversing with. However, instead of mirroring the other person’s characteristics simultaneously, you allow a time lapse.
For instance, if during our conversation you make a hand gesture when emphasizing a point, I would make a similar hand gesture later in the conversation when emphasizing a point. This would create an emotional response of acceptance and trust.
The characteristics that you can match to create instant trust are limited only by what the person is doing. Some good attributes to match are hand gestures and head movement.
Cross-matching is the ability to gain trust with someone by matching their behavior with a corresponding behavior of your own, but not the exact action as the other person.
For instance, you may notice someone’s breathing rate and tap your finger to the rate of their breath. Or you may note their foot motion and move your hand at the same rate of their foot tap.
To break trust and end conversations quickly use Mismatching
Sometimes we are involved in conversations that we need to end for whatever reason: time constraints, conversations with no value, etc. In these cases, it is advantageous to use mismatching to end conversations quickly. This is the opposite of creating instant trust. To mismatch someone, you must note their behaviors and then provide opposing behaviors.
For instance, you may abruptly change your posture to reflect the opposite of theirs. If they lean back in their chair, you lean forward. You may change your rate of breathing to run counter to theirs, or your voice level may go up or down. Again, running opposite of what pitch their voice is at.
Next time you find yourself on a long plane flight with someone that goes on and on, try this technique. You will find it very valuable. The best way to find the value of these techniques is to test them. Choose multiple people and utilize these techniques to create trust, and then try mismatching them to eliminate trust, and notice how quickly your quality of communication changes.
