  • Listen to the other person and PAY attention to the details. Look them in the eyes when listening or speaking to them.

  • Try to say their name at least once during the conversation to validate them and bring a personal touch. People love that to happen.

  • I always found it helped to ask questions. It showed I was interested in what they were saying and put me at ease. I used to talk out loud to myself also so I could put myself at ease before going out.

  • Ask questions and follow-up questions to keep the conversation going. Look the speaker in the eyes when either of you is speaking. Uncross your arms/legs and loosen up physically. Smile more. Pay attention to details and ask about them. Practice diplomacy when talking with people who have opinions vastly different from your own. Show genuine interest.
