Sample text

The landlord may feel that you think him foolish and this may mean that he now feels inhibited about revealing other information in case that is judged harshly. In order to create an atmosphere of trust and empathy, it is essential to develop self-awareness and awareness of others, to avoid being judgmental and not to assume that everyone’s views and reactions will be the same as yours.

Thus, in order to obtain information about your client’s state of mind, you will need to observe and listen with close attention. You should also be aware of your own non-verbal communication. Why has the client stopped talking? Is it because you are giving the impression that you have stopped listening or are not interested?

Your job is to make the client feel comfortable and to elicit the information you need in order to find a solution to the client’s problem. Thus, adhering rigidly to your plan when it is obvious that the interview is not following the pattern you envisaged is no help to anyone. Use your judgment. Take time before an interview to think through what you need to find out and what you need to do and note it in writing, particularly if you are inexperienced, but be prepared to diverge from your plan at any time.
