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?
- Talk about the weather. “The sun is really hot today. It should rain soon”
- 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?”
- 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.
