How to Initiate a Great Conversation

One of the key components to establishing a solid career is very good communication skills. In fact, it is imperative that developing good conversations is essential to growing your networking by focusing on relationships.

When you understand the importance of initiating and developing a good conversation you will quickly find out people will give you immense value and knowledge.

It is also incredibly important that you listen. Listen to what your conversation partner has to say–they will help you! People love to talk about themselves–nothing wrong with that! So listen and ask questions. Learn as much as you can about them and what they do. They will share their likes and dislikes, what they have accomplished and can definitely give you the leg up in your career.

If a person knows you–even based on a short albeit good conversation–guess who they will recommend for a job they know about which isn’t advertised? Yup…you!

So keep on talk to people. Listen attentively. Add value to the conversation and in any way in the person’s life. And be genuinely interested…you can’t really fake this so it is important to continue to be interested and curious with everything around you!
