4 Important Conversation Tips for Your Personal and Professional Lives

By Peter Murphy

If you are searching for a way to improve your communication skills at work and in your personal life, here are some conversation tips that will give you a good starting point.

Your personal and business environments may be very different, but the skills needed to communicate effectively are basically the same.

If you are attentive, informed, and a great listener, you can start a conversation with almost anyone in any situation.

1. If you need to improve your conversational skills in the workplace, look around at those who seem to continually advance in their profession.

Notice how they speak with other employees, from the CEO to the janitor. A friendly smile, a firm handshake, and a confident attitude are generally common factors among those who are quickly moving up the corporate ladder.

By making a conscious effort to speak with everyone you encounter and displaying a friendly, self-assured attitude, you will project a successful image and make lasting impressions upon co-workers.

2. Your personal life is no different in that a positive outlook and friendly disposition will go a long way in improving your relationships with friends and family members.

Everyone you encounter, from your spouse to the clerk at your local convenience store will appreciate and respond favorably to a kind word and a smiling face.

By paying attention to the interests and activities of others, you will never lack for conversation. Ask about the other person's day, future plans, or any subject that you know is of interest to them.

You can easily converse with everyone you meet if you listen carefully and make a real effort to project a positive image.

3. If you want to always have plenty to say to co-workers and your employer, keep up to date on the latest developments in your particular field.

Read trade magazines, company literature, and search web sites. Having the ability to hold an intelligent conversation about your line of work will make you invaluable in your company and allow you to communicate effectively.

Be discreet and professional in your conversations with other employees. No supervisor will begrudge you a few moments of small talk now and then, but constant chatting and talking across the room to others is distracting and unprofessional.

Chat for a few minutes when your workload allows, but keep it quiet and courteous.

4. Courtesy, genuine interest, and a little preparation will give you an advantage in your ability to converse with others.

Make a mental note of things of interest that can be used to start a conversation and give you an edge in the workplace.

Current events, local politics, and the activities of others will always make good conversation starters whether at home or at the office.

Conversational tips include common courtesy, a positive attitude, and a little planning. If you observe a few simple rules, your communication skills will improve dramatically.

These conversation tips should be enough to get you started down the path of successful communication. The ability to carry on a conversation with very little effort is a learned skill that comes easier to some than others.

If you need to improve your conversational skills, practice these tips each day and pretty soon they will be habits that come naturally.

"I want to just say 'WOW!' This collection is probably the best money I ever spent! I've already received many times over in personal enrichment after just 9 days. I've had a past metaphysical background, but even newcomers to this material will really benefit. Thanks again." ~ J.S. (Pennsylvania, USA)
"The collection is everything which you promised. And more! A superb contribution to the good of the world. Many thanks indeed." ~ R.P. (Georgia, USA)
"Just a short note of thanks for the library. I've only had membership for several days now but I already feel this is perhaps the most interesting compilation I have yet seen. Worth far more than the price of admission. The browser linked structure works well and makes it easy to manage such a large storehouse of information. It is rarely that I find something I like as much as this or that I feel strongly enough to write a note like this." ~ P.W. (Minnesota, USA)
