TIP OF THE DAY
How to Have a Great Conversation
Be interesting. The first step in having a great conversation is to work on yourself. You need to have a wealth of knowledge to draw on to make the conversation last. The more information you have to draw on, the better your conversation will be.
Be interested. Make sure that the person you are talking to is important to you. If you really aren't interested in the person you are talking to, you can't have a great conversation.
Listen. Believe it or not, more of your conversation skills actually fall into the listening category than the talking category. If you follow what the other person is talking about, it intensifies the conversation.
Communicate clearly. Make sure that the person can hear and understand you well. For example, it is hard to have a good conversation in a loud club.
Use your nonverbal communication skills. Make sure you are making eye contact with the person and your whole body is facing them. This shows interest and keeps your mind from wandering.
Watch for non-verbal cues. If the other person is checking their watch or scanning the crowd, move on. You don't want to try to drag out a dead conversation.
