Learning how to talk to everyone you encounter, from familiar colleagues to new contacts, is a skill that you must cultivate and develop if you want to get ahead in any industry. It involves learning how to socialise with others, even when you are not overly keen on engaging in conversation yourself. It also requires the ability to be selfless in conversation, asking more questions than you answer and letting your partner dominate the conversation at times.
This course goes into detail about the ways you can learn how to talk to any person, at any time, in any place. We begin by talking about why you need to be open when engaging in conversation, as well as how you can cultivate the will to talk to others when you don’t feel like it. We also discuss the importance of showing interest in conversations. Next, we review the key strategies you can use to talk to people you have not met before. We also cover the steps involved in carrying on social talk. Finally, we leave you with a few tips on how to be a successful talker regardless of the situation.
