Chances are you’ll come across a group with someone who is what I like to call a “street preacher” in that they are in the center and entertaining lots of people. These groups are good to identify. You can listen to what the person has to say, but what I do is listen to what they have to say enough that I can interact with them or be able to interject if the opportunity is present.

How to Win Over Strangers Like a Politician

Provided By: 

I have previously written about coping with stress and anxiety , now we'll focus on the art of turning the awkwardness of meeting new people into an opportunity to let yourself shine.

To catch you up to speed with the last article, I have social anxiety. That means when I’m surrounded by large groups of people I don’t know, I want to get the hell out of there as soon as possible. But over the last few years I’ve taught myself some tricks that have not only helped me overcome the awkward feelings, but also have allowed me to become the life of the party instead of a wallflower.

The most valuable lesson I can give you is to work the room. Don’t stand still, even if you are petrified of your surroundings. Instead of becoming a victim of the awkwardness, take control of it. Own it completely.

Identify the Different Groups

As you begin to float around the room, take note of the different groups.

Chances are you’ll come across a group with someone who is what I like to call a “street preacher” in that they are in the center and entertaining lots of people. These groups are good to identify. You can listen to what the person has to say, but what I do is listen to what they have to say enough that I can interact with them or be able to interject if the opportunity is present.

In these situations, use this as a chance to read the body language of the listeners in the group. Some people will be enthralled, others will be disgusted. Take note of this so later you may spark up conversation with any one of the people listening by referring to the speaker and his/her conversation. It doesn’t matter what opinion you take, just be able to speak to the other person’s opinion.

Bail out of this group politely and continue your path. Most of the time I will fly around the room with my goal being a cocktail or h'or dourve and then just being able to escape each group with, “Well, I’m going to go grab a drink, have a great night…I’ll catch up with you later!”

(Please note that after some practice, you will need to pace your drinking or eating. Many times, out of nervousness, I’ve gotten trashed by making very numerous trips to the bar and tossing drinks back too quickly just to make conversation.)

Establish Commonality

At some point you’ll probably come across a group of wallflowers. You can take this opportunity to either ask a question about the event or about someone in the room. By talking about something that everyone has in common (if you’re in the same place, something of common interest probably brought you there), you’ll be engaging all members of the group. And sometimes people just need a kick-start to conversation.

To be engaging, you must always make the person you're talking to feel like they are the most important person in the room. Make solid eye contact , smile and laugh when appropriate, and be an active listener. This isn't a suggestion to be 'fake,' it doesn't matter if you like this person or not, it simply means you're gi...
