Take Turns

You learned about taking turns in kindergarten. In the best relationships, people share. Yet, have you noticed that some people handle their nervousness by talking too little, and others by talking too much? Monitor yourself and make a conscious effort to have your fair share of air time. But also learn how to encourage others to talk.

Try these ideas for getting other people to open up. As you explore a variety of topics, you'll find many opportunities for Listening Generously, developing trust, and encouraging relationships. Some of these ideas will help you as you begin a conversation with someone you have just met; others can be used as you follow up with contacts and learn more about them so that you can build your relationships.
