Learning How To Talk and Gaining Trust With Others.
Are you shy or can you strike up a conversation with anyone?
Do you like to feel like you are part of the group?
Where do you go to make new friends or learn something new?
I have a few pointers that can help in learning how to talk and gain trust with others.
When you can ask a new acquaintance questions about their life, work, and/or interests, they chatter away happily; but ask nothing in return. It’s like you were not even there. You have nothing of interest to them. Conversations that I know go both ways.
They do not realize that life is all about asking questions? The age of new technology has made them look for information instead of asking other for it.
If you meet a person and fail to ask any questions, the result will likely be:
- You will not learn anything new.
- The person you met will likely walk away with a bad impression.
- You will not make a meaningful connection.
This post has some exercises for us to do in order to help break out and learn how to talk with others.

- Ask Questions on what you’ve heard. Listen first to what they said to you.
- Communicate interest with Your Body. Look at them.
- Practice and Get Feedback. Ask
