10 Rules Of A Great Conversationalist
Conversationalist is the person who communicates with others on different topics which will give a proper conclusion to the talk. For the success of every conversation, you need to follow certain rules which are as follows.
1 ) Be Genuinely Interested In The Person
Strive to know about him/her through the conversation. Because if you do this the person involved in the conversation will understand that you are in real sense interested in that person eventually in the talk as well.
2) Focus On The Positives
Opt for positive and meaningful topics over negative ones. Because one negative thought in a conversationalist mind can ruin the entire discussion.
3) Converse, Not Debate
Remember one thing conversation is very different than debate so where there are differences agree or disagree but not to argue.
4) Respect, don’t Impose, Criticize or Judge
Respect others space and right to their views and try to welcome their thoughts and respect their feelings.
5) Put the Person in his/her Best Light
Make the person look good means they should be confident about their authentic task
6) Embrace Differences
While building on commonalities try to understand that the nature of each person is different and there are very less chance to get common qualities in two persons.
7) Be True to Yourself
Never hesitate to share your own thoughts as only you know what your talking is genuine and true.
8) 50-50 Sharing
While discussing don’t dominate the discussion. At the same time don’t ever hold back your thoughts from sharing.
9) Ask Purposeful Questions
What drives you in life? What are your current goals? Such type of meaningful questions always tries to get meaningful answers by focusing on the positive side.
10) Give and Take
Don’t be too critical of what others say/ do, always give others the chance to clarify their doubts and even you should understand what they say in a clear way.
