“Everyone has their own ways of expression. I believe we all have a lot to say, but finding ways to say it is more than half the battle.” – Criss Jamie
Let’s express by finding ways to say more. Take a look at the view of the conversationalist to express yourself through this…
Be Genuinely Interested in the person
Do your best to know more about him/her through the conversation.
Be true to yourself
Don’t mime; be ready to share your own thoughts.
Give and Take
In conversation giving and taking of information should be taken care of. Nothing goes one way.
Focus on the positives
Opt for Conversation and expressive topics over negative ones.
Share the topic and interest
Don’t dominate the discussion. At the same time, don’t hold back from partaking either.
Converse, not debate or argue
Where there are differences, agree to disagree.
Ask purposeful questions
Meaningful questions elicit expressive answers. E.g. what drives you in life? What are your current goals? What inspired you to make this change?
Don’t impose, criticize or judge
Respect others time, space and right to their views.
Show and benefit
Don’t be too critical over what others say/do. Always give others the benefit of the doubt.
Put the person in spotlight
Make the person look important (without being unauthentic).
While building on harmonies and commonalities.
Keep Smiling 🙂
