How do I become likable?
Here are the 3-steps that make up The Listening Ear Technique:
1. Ask more questions and look into the person’s eyes.
2. Make them feel valuable and important.
3. Refrain from giving advice.
The whole technique is about making you super likable by simply LISTENING carefully and by BEING genuinely interested in others.
The problem is that we think that we need to give advice and to talk to make someone else feel great or feel better.
Actually, you’ll be way more helpful and likable if you’re just acknowledging this person, what she is and what she is saying!
It’s not only working with deep conversations or debates but also with the very short encounters we are doing every day of our life! No matter where and with whom! 🙂
The Listening Ear Technique in 3 steps
Let me give you more details about each one of them:
Step #1: Ask more questions and look into the person’s eyes.
When someone is talking, be genuinely interested in what they are sharing.
Most of the time, we listen while “waiting” for our turn to talk!
From now on, use this time to really listen to what this person is saying, only listen.
Ask more questions to understand better and look at this person’s eyes as much as possible.
When you’ll start doing this, you’ll wonder how you did all of your life without properly listen…!
Step #2: Make them feel valuable and important.
As I always say, human beings just want to be seen, heard and understood.
Make this person feel valuable and important by using sentences such as:
- What you are saying is interesting!
- I understand what you mean!
- Good point!
- I’ve never thought of this…
- I totally agree!
- It definitely makes sense…
Step #3: Refrain from giving advice.
This is where the technique is a bit different from what we all have been doing…
It’s a complete change of paradigm that I’m offering you here!
You will be very likable by being there for the other one, by listening to what they are saying and making them feel valuable!
You do not have to give any advice.
Unless they ask you for it with questions such as “What do you think that I should do?” or “If you would be me, what would you do?”, do not tell them what to do.
In life coaching, we truly believe in others that they have the resources to find all the answers to their questions and solutions to their problems.
You don’t have to be a life coach to do the same! 😉
Help them by asking questions and give them the power to believe in themselves, they can do it! You can help them by being there for them, making them feel valuable and important! 🙂
Be authentic, be genuine!
No matter what word is talking to you the most, keep in mind that using The Listening Ear Technique means that you HAVE TO do it and to be 100% authentic and genuine!
To be likable is all about authentically listen to someone else and genuinely making them feel valuable and important!
The Listening Ear Technique works with everyone you know!
The greatness about The Listening Ear Technique is that it will make you more likable no matter who you’re using with!

- Your kid
- Your best friend
- Your father
- Your boss
- Your spouse
- …As you can see, everyone! 🙂
