Hypnosis: Establish Rapport with Leading
is a program of powerful techniques used to persuade and
control those around you. Not only is conversational
hypnosis used so that you have influence over others, but it
is also used so that other people do not take advantage of
you. Conversational hypnosis allows you to establish rapport
with other individuals and that leads to you getting what
The most important aspect of conversational hypnosis is
learning how to develop rapport with other people. Rapport
is the ability to be “in tune” with someone subconsciously.
Rapport will enable others to have trust in you. Rapport
will allow you to gain their trust so that you can get what
In past articles I have talked about establishing rapport
through pacing and mirroring techniques. In this article I
am going to talk about the technique of leading. Leading is
a technique to use after you have been pacing someone for
about 5-10 minutes. However, I highly suggest practicing
leading for a week on friends or strangers before trying it
out to get what you want.
Leading is where you make someone do what you want them to
do. For example, if you have been pacing and mirroring
someone for a little while, it is time to test to see if
they have developed rapport with you. If you have
established rapport correctly, you can take the lead by
doing something and they will follow.
It is important to make sure you have mastered mirroring and
pacing before you move on to leading. Be sure to practice
all three techniques before being put in a serious position
where you intend to lead someone. These techniques take a
little bit of practice to master and before long you will be
a master of conversational hypnosis.
While practicing on friends or strangers, I suggest keeping
the leading simple. For example, after you have mirrored and
paced someone for 5-10 minutes, you can lead them by
scratching your head. If they scratch their head, you have
accomplished your goal of leading them.
Leading is a great technique to use in a business setting
because you can get them to do what you want them to do.
However, it is very important to be careful in a business
setting. It is possible that other business people know
about conversational hypnosis. Let’s say for example that
you scratch your head. If the other person waits a little
while and then scratches their head, then your technique is
a success. However if they scratch their head very quickly
after you did, perhaps they are trying to pace you. So, be
Another way you can use leading is to slow someone’s voice
tempo, or to speed it up. If someone is speaking too
quickly, you can start slowing down your voice and see if
they follow your lead. Leading has all sorts of
possibilities. I encourage you to practice this skill and
soon you will be leading people to do what you want!
