10 Ways to have a better conversation
"A good conversation is like a miniskirt; short enough to retain interest,but long enough to cover the subject."Celeste Headlee
I can't get enough of this TED talk.
Everything journalist Celeste Headlee has to say about having better conversations is amazing - and convicting.
She touches on the need for better conversations; aren't we all wanting a more polite dialog? She identifies problems with our current approach; we look for hacks for how to pay attention though if we actually pay attention, we don't need hacks. She reminds us how wonderful great conversations make us feel.
But mostly, she gives incredibly sage advice on how to connect with people.
