The real-time dance of rapport

Many new students of NLP learn that rapport is a key relational skill, a necessity for establishing trust, harmony, and cooperation. They see it as a harmonious mutual understanding, an agreement, being "in tune" and "in accord" with another.

But what if I told you that rapport is simply relationship in real-time? It's not so much a skill or technique as it is an art, a dynamic play of give and take. Imagine rapport as the subtle art of being with someone, not just physically but mentally and emotionally. It's like a dance where each step, each move, is in response to your partner.

It's more than just matching and mirroring body language or using similar language patterns. It's about being present, in the moment, and finding that unique frequency where two human beings can resonate.
