Good Conversation pt.2

Good communication skills are essential to allow others and yourself to understand information more accurately and quickly. In contrast, poor communication skills lead to frequent misunderstandings and frustration.

4. Pay a unique compliment. Be generous. And go out and give someone a nice, full compliment. Try and construct a compliment that’s unique and genuine. You don’t have to lie though. 

5.Ask for an opinion. Everyone wants to be heard, and validated. You’d be surprised how much you’ll be able to learn about a person by just by asking for their opinion about something generic. Don’t ask about something really complex or difficult. 

6. Be present. When someone’s trying to communicate with you, be wholeheartedly there for that conversation. Make eye contact. 

7.) Remember the little details about a person. Remember someone’s name and say it back to them. Remember all the other details as well. The things they like, places they’ve been to. Be genuinely interested. 

Have a great Sunday.

  1. Great tips!!! Yes–building others up is a GREAT way to be a good conversationalist. I’m pretty socially awkward, so I always keep a list of questions in my head to ask folks. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Great tips. I think sometimes we’re too worried to ask for opions – and people aren’t always comfortable giving feedback/opinions or giving compliments, but the occasions when I’ve done this, you can see how it lifts them up – its nice to see the effect it has on someone else
