Avoid "me too" and stay focused on the other person's story to create rapport

Watch out for the "me too" trap when engaging in conversations. Don't immediately jump in with something similar that's happened to you. Keep listening and be curious with the person's story. Don't talk about your experience or example until you have given the person a chance to feel heard.

Saying "me too" might seem like a good way to establish a connection, but it actually shuts people down. They want to tell their story, not listen to you. Instead, use curious questions to keep the connection going and create rapport.

How will you avoid the "me too" trap in your conversations?
