If you’ve lost an appreciation for the art of conversation, it’s time to re-open that door. Behind it are stronger relationships, more opportunities and a more satisfying way of living. When you focus your efforts on having great conversations every day, you see great things start to fall into place. Here are three reasons why.
It’s a great way to invest in others. Have you ever been around someone who just wants to listen to you, someone who is truly interested in you? You might not find them often, but when you do, they stick out. When you speak with someone and listen to what they have to say, you show you value them.
You don’t have to be the most outgoing person in the room. The only requirements are you be authentic and show you value what the other person has to say. You don’t have to say anything profound. You don’t have to impress people with your every word. You simply have to participate, actively listen, and be open and honest in what you say.
