Abstract:

Not only is good communication vital for most professions, being able to have a quick, comfortable conversation -- something more than 40 percent of adults struggle with -- can be helpful in almost every aspect of your life. With How to Start and Make a Conversation, you will be able to start and hold a conversation with nearly anyone in 30 seconds or less. You will learn how to make small talk and what is so important about being able to hold a conversation. From the basic tenets of how you feel about yourself to how you assume other people see you, you will learn what conversation entails and what you can expect when you let your guard down and simply start talking. You will learn some basic concepts of what people are interested in talking about and how to avoid those awkward pauses. This book can help even the shyest of individuals understand what they need to know to keep the conversation running smoothly. You will learn how to carry the clout in a conversation and what subtleties, topics, and habits to avoid to keep from feeling embarrassed. Learn how to gracefully exit a casual conversation and finally learn how to meet new people by attending or holding networking events, holiday parties, or venturing into the dreaded singles' scene. If you need to brush up on your people skills, How to Start and Make a Conversation will show you how.
