3 Quick Tips on How to Have a Conversation With Anyone
Starting up a conversation with anyone can sometimes be difficult and even awkward, but here are three tips on how you can do it comfortably and casually.
1. Be Interested; Not Interesting
What this means is to be interested in the person you are chatting with. Do not try to be the most interesting person in the conversation. In other words, don't talk about you the entire time.
F.O.R.M. is a general acronym meaning Family, Occupation, Recreation and Motivations.
2. Ask Them About Their F.O.R.M.
F.O.R.M is a great acronym to remember during conversations. Ask them about their Family: Do you have kids? How old are they? How long have you been married?
Ask about their Occupation: What do you do for a living? How long have you done that? Do you love it? What's the best part about your job? Ask about their
Recreation: What do you do during your down time? What's your favorite hobby? Favorite sport and why?
Ask about their Motivations: Where do you see yourself in 5 years? Why do you do the job you do? What's your dream vacation? What are your business goals? What are your spiritual goals?
3. Be Curious
It's amazing what people will tell you about themselves if you just ask. Being curious about people makes them feel that you really care about what they are talking about, going through, and their experiences.
Bonus tip: YOU SHOULD CARE. Be open to learning about this person, because they may be able to help you or you may be the solution to their prayers.
I promise you will surely have a breakthrough!
