Our way of communicating with other people means a lot in day to day life. In most cases, people who do not know will judge you depending on your way of conversing. How you go about talking to people especially strangers is very important.
For those who are business people, they will agree with me that conversation is very important in winning a potential client. If you want to win that contract you have to talk in a manner that will make everyone in that panel believe in you. Same case when looking for a job.
When you hang out with friends or you lover you also need to be good in your conversation. Here are ways that will help you better your conversation.
- Listen Before You Talk
Listening is a very important tool when it comes to having a good conversation. You must learn to listen to other people talk so that you will know what to say yourself. Try to process and understand what they same before you can say anything yourself.
- Avoid Too Much Excitement
This is something that goes hand in hand with listening. Once you listen to what they are saying, it does it matter whether it has motivated you or not. Or you are so much eager to spit out what is in your mind.
Take time before you start jumping in.DO not allow everyone to see how much eager you are to talk.
- Follow The Flow
Once it is your time to talk, try following the flow.DO not bring up other topics that will shut down the conversation. In some cases you might be so much pressed to speak out your mind. Not so fast.
Also avoid going back to something you have already talked about. This will make the conversation boring.
- Ask Meaningful Questions
This is where you are supposed to be careful. In most cases the type of questions asked may turn someone off. This means that you should consider your way of asking questions very well. Try to ask open questions that will not annoy.
- Do not Answer Wrongly By Pretending To Know
Saying that you do not know something it is always better than pretending to know. When you pretend to know something you end up answering it in the wrong way. This might annoy your collegues.You should feel free to ask what you do not know.
- Do Not Multitask
When you are having a conversation, people always want you to give them full attention. Multitasking in most cases will turn off your friends. Do not use your phone and converse at the same time.
- Avoid Dominating The Conversation
When you dominate in a conversation it not only becomes boring but you also deny your colleagues a chance to say something. Dominating is also going to make you repeat things or go out of topic. Try to speak out your mind briefly.
- Add Value
There are people who have the tendency of talking but they are not adding value to that conversation. Always try to make sure that you are talking about things that people need to hear about. Try to make it fun and interesting.
