Chapter 13. Conversations > Guidelines to becoming a good conversationalist

Guidelines to becoming a good conversationalist

The most important guideline you can follow to become a good conversationalist is to be a good listener. Although many people tend to focus on the speaking aspect of conversation, good conversationalists know that they should do more listening than speaking.

When you listen, your body language should convey that you are listening. Usually, standing or sitting up straight, making eye contact, nodding, and not fidgeting communicate that the speaker has your attention. You can also demonstrate that you’re listening attentively by asking intelligent questions.
