There are many ways to connect with the person you’re talking to. One such way is to tilt your head as you listen to them. Tilting your head is an effective body language technique which communicates that you’re paying attention to what they’re saying.
People are more likely to converse with you when you know you’re interested. The longer the conversation, the more you’ll get to know each other, and therefore build a strong relationship. Relationships are at the heart of networking.
