Validate thoughts and opinions This technique is quite difficult because of "our innate need to correct others and the difficulty we have suppressing our own egos." But if you remember that we like people who are like us, you'll immediately grasp the power of validating thoughts and opinions of others. The entire time, the individual being targeted is the one supplying the content of the conversation.
The best way to get someone to do what you want them to do is to have them come up with the idea.  This means suppressing your ego and listening to what people are saying.
Individuals practicing good ego suspension would continue to encourage the other individual to talk about his or her story, neglecting their own need to share what they think is a great story. Validate others There are many types of validation. Listening This is the simplest and one of the most effective.
Just listen to someone can produce amazing results.

Another nonverbal to try and maintain is a slightly lower chin angle.Most times, when two individuals engage in a conversation, each patiently waits for the other person to be done with whatever story he or she is telling.Then, the other person tells his or her own story, usually on a related topic and often times in an attempt to have a better and more interesting story.It may even mean that you know what you're talking about.However speaking slowly gives you more credibility.
