Tips (and whys) that Lead to Successful Introductions

 👇 Podcast:   Parenting Your "Nearly Grown"   JUST.   GOT.   EASIER.👇  

#97:  Everything good can start with an introduction.  Sadly, every missed connection can start with a sub-par introduction, too.  Let's help our kids learn this baseline skill.  

Forbes magazine got it right.  They recently discussed the importance of introductions.  The phrase they used?   Introductions are “immensely important”.  Absolutely.  

Now sprinkle in these 2 timely teen observations: 

  • Late teens just beyond in age typically have spent most of their time around the same people: family and the same set of friends they’ve had for 3+ years.  They have not needed to introduce themselves very often.  Now let’s up our observation game here
  • Our “almost grown kids” for the better part of 2 years or more, have been hibernating behind a computer at home. Does this allow them to even practice introductions?  Not really. 

An in-person one-on-one introduction is a skill to be learned and practiced.  Let me just give you just a few scenarios in which your “mini-you” will need an effective introduction.  Applying for a part-time job, or full time job, an interview for schools or organizations they want to join, meeting new friends post-high school, meeting a potential apartment manager just t to name a few.  Enough said, right?

We all instinctively know that words in an introduction are important.  But did you know that your body language often speakers louder than the words you speak?  Those subliminal signals we convey speak LOUDLY.  

But does your “nearly grown” know about the body language signals they should and should not send off?  More importantly, they need to know the WHY behind it all.  It is so much more than just “doing a proper introduction.”

In this podcast I cover:  Click Here

  • 3 introduction body language signals and their importance to your teen
  • how long you have to make a good one-on-one peer introduction

This podcast is so practical and useful.  My hope is that it helps your teen launch into life just a bit more prepared than before.
