Christina Canters: Can we talk about the buffer boomerang technique? Because you held up the piece of paper and for the people who are listening on the audio, can you explain, so I'm gonna read it now. So at one side there's buffer and a two in the circle, and then there's a, it's like a smiley face. And at the other end of the smiley face it says boomerang.

And underneath it says, that is a good question. Can you explain, Richard, what the buffer boomerang

Richard Blank: technique is? Well, you saw the negative two in the buffer cuz someone's negative. And so what I need to do is I need to buffer the negative name, drop you to get your attention. Again, I can't say it's a great question every time.

You can't beat that horse of death, but let's just use it to the, that's an excellent question. Repeat the question back, which I did to Aaron, and then send it, and if your audience can't see or the ones that can, I was smiling the entire time talking to you, and I was leaning forward the entire time using my hands as illustrators.

To give myself that balance and rhythm. I mean, you could tell, and there are certain extended pauses. I like to adjust my voice to go really high and then to loud whispers to make a statement.

Christina Canters: So why is that effective? Why, why is that

Richard Blank: effective? Because monotony, you only catch a, a monotonous speaking in monotone.

You catch one in five. So you really need to, it's almost like a dessert tray, Christina, you, you don't bring everything out on one level. You know how they have it stacked in different levels so you can see it and enjoy it. Each one deserves its own marquee and imagery, and so each one deserves its pause to see if there's a positive or negative reinforcement.

You never know, and I don't like jumping the gun because some people could be so amazed. And they're pondering and they're waiting to say something back. And so I love to allow people to feel more comfortable with me, to become more engaged in a conversation. This is not a lecture, and I'm not just checking off boxes and, and, and interrogating you.

It's a conversation con with sation. And it's, I mean, my, I don't learn anything new when I. I love hearing what other people have to say to see what I have in common. And I get a lot of compliments for being a very good listener. And I take copious notes. I believe in meeting minutes because there's accountability.

People might forget something. And it's just an excellent way to avoid any sort of conflict and, and you could take the initiative, you can be proactive, you can make sure the target dates are hit and the times to call back are. , um, everyone needs to lead the dance. Might as well be you and allowing them to think that they are, which is fine.

This is Richard Blank’s story…
My name is Richard Blank and I’m the CEO of Costa Rica’s Call Center. I’m skilled in reading phonetic micro expressions and use this to my advantage when speaking with people, especially over the phone.

I’ve found that by using someone’s name, asking how their company is doing, and sharing interesting facts about myself, I’m able to build rapport and influence the person I’m speaking with. This has been beneficial in both my personal and professional life.

In this episode, you will discover:

The tone of voice should always be positive and empathetic.
0 seconds to 2 minutes is the best time to gauge a person.
How to gauge someone. They discuss some of the techniques they use to do it.
Richard believes in open-ended questions and specific name drops.

Richard’s advice to people is to be authentic.
When he was in his 20s, he tried to change his personality for a job interview, but he realised it was not going to work for him. Now he allows people to grow naturally.
