Handling Small Talk the Right Way

by | Mar 27, 2016 | Careers & Work | 0 comments

Most people hate small talk; they would rather talk about death, latest celebrity gossip or the government. Did you know that engaging in small talk can be a win situation for you? If you didn’t it is time to start engaging in small talk

So how do you do this?

  1. Talk about the weather. “The sun is really hot today. It should rain soon
  2. If it is at work: “There was lots of traffic today morning, you use Langata road, right?” or “Are you going for the work Easter Party this Friday?”
  3. At social or professional events: “Do you know who the guest speaker is? That was a really good speech?” or “Have you tried their pizza? It is so good!

Such comments create a foundation for a good conversation.
