    I have a way with people = I have a right approach to the people

    Dear teachers,

    I know the meaning of the idiom “have way with” namely “ have success in dealing with”.

    “I can see you’re going to spoil that girl.”
    “Nonsense, I flatter myself I have a way with people. I have a way with young children also.”

    Would you be kind to tell me whether I can use the phrase “ right approach to the people” instead of “a have a way with people”?

    Thank you for your efforts.
