    1. Be Brief, Be Positive
    It’s not how much you have to say. It is how brief you are in saying it all.
    Watch the other person’s reaction, feel the feelings, allow the other side to jump into the conversation.

    Two great books to consider:
    Be Brief, Be Positive by Scott Adams
    The Art of Civilized Conversation by Margaret Shepherd

    Your body language is one of the powerful tools that is critical in making the point in any conversation.
    I studied Dale Carnegie years ago and his renowned work “How To Win Friends & Influence People.” The book is still relevant nowadays since it’s been released in 1936!

    Carnegie’s ideas and practical tips would be a very powerful tool to put you on success not only to find a job, rather making CONNECTIONS with other people.

    • thia beniash says:

      brief, i am not…usually. i love to tell stories. I do my best to always be positive. There’s no point in negative, it doesn’t do anyone any good. EVER.

    • Janice Dean says:

      Both books look like great reads. And yes, body language is a good think to know!

    • I try to be positive both at home and at work, but sometimes it is very hard. I always have to be careful of what I say and do. I walk on egg shells daily.

      • Coffetime or anyone, can you offer me any advise on how to deal with this situation? I am afraid of the stress that it is putting on me daily.

        • CoffeeTime says:

          Tammy,
          The first thing from what you said that comes to my mind is: Why do you think you have to be so careful in what you say and feel like you’re walking on egg shells?

          What is it: The hostile atmosphere that drives you to the edge? Or your Fear that you may say something wrong?

          First, I would answer this questions to myself truthfully.
          Second, I’ll work out the plan of action, depending on what the answer to Question 1 was.

          Let me know if you need help and support in this one!

          • I truely do need help with this one. I have tried talking with my husband about the situation and at first he was very supportive but as time has gone by he does not help remedy the situation. I think about it daily and how to fix it but nothing works. Then only people who seem to listen and offer any help is my two daughters. They listen and help me threw the stress so I do not have another heart attack.

        • CoffeeTime says:

          Tammy,
          It is great you have support of your daughters.
          Do you have support of your husband?
          You need to make up your mind (need to decide what’s important: avoiding your next heart attack or keep walking on egg shells) what is important and Sustainable in the long-run.
          Having your soul caged would not benefit anyone.

      • Rebecca Swenor says:

        Here is a great book for you to read: The 5 Love Languages It helps you communicate in any relationship. It helped me with how I communicate with my kids and others in my family. Great book.

    • Mandi Gilliam says:

      I have actually read that book!!!! It has been a wonderful tool in my life 🙂

    • Mandi Gilliam says:

      How to win friends and influence people

    • Interesting, I’m very straight forward. Love it or leave it kind of person. I don’t know if its a good or bad thing,lol

    • Jessica Parent says:

      I am not typically brief (I am a talker) I do try to be positive in all that I do/say but am a little negative by nature so its easier for me to give positive advice/attitude to others than to always be positive myself

      • Karen Hinkle says:

        I can say I am kinda both depends on the conversation and we all know that body language is and I know ppl know when I am having a bad day well great topic I like it and yes I try to be positive towards other I might learn something from them

    • Carol Yemola says:

      The Dale Carnegie course has an awesome reputation. You can learn more from body language than the spoken word. That is why face to face conversations are best as opposed to written word or phone conversations. You can really get the true meaning of the conversation face to face.

    • Cynthia Dubuque says:

      I try not to talk too much and let the other person/people talk, but sometimes I’m so passionate about the topic that I can’t help myself.

    • Jennifer Hiles says:

      I once went to a “talk” about body language and it has stuck with me for years. Simple things like how a person shakes your hand, what they do with their other hand while they are shaking your hand. It was so interesting and I would love to learn more about it. Especially when it comes to my professional life and even personal life. I would love to check out these books.

    • People can tell if I am in a good or bad mood because of a birthmark on my forehead. It actually changes colors depending on my mood..

    • I think I might read these…I am very socially awkward.

    • Rebecca Swenor says:

      Another great book is The 5 Love Languages. It can help you in any relationship in your life. It is a great read it helps you understand yourself better as far as communicating

    2. Become a Good Listener
    – Allow other person to express their opinion and talk as much as they want!
    – You can make an excellent impression by saying as little as one sentence!
    There were cases in my personal experience when I hardly said anything, but what I heard later, the other person appreciated me as one of the best conversationalists. WOW, and that was all possible to just listening to the other individual.

    When a person talks, it gives their brain as much pleasure as food or money:
    “Talking about ourselves z- whether in a personal conversation or through social media sites like Facebook or Twitter – triggers the same sensation of pleasure in the brain as food or money…”

    About 40% of everyday speech is devoted to telling others about what we feel or think. Now, through five brain imaging and behavioral experiments, Harvard University neuroscientists have uncovered the reason: It feels so rewarding, at the level of brain cells and synapses, that we can’t help sharing our thoughts.”

    Per that study, people were even willing to forgo money in order to talk about themselves! That is something to consider in all your dealings with any individual ever!

    • thia beniash says:

      People forgo money to talk about themselves? you could shut me up for money. lol. then i could just get paid to sit and craft and play on computer all day. as long as i did it quietly. no problem here.
      for some people FB is not so much “talking about themselves” as sharing with family and friends photos and joys of times they cant be there.

    • Wendi Watson says:

      I am a very good listener and i am not one to ignore sometimes i wish i had the same in return i would love to talk to a friend or mate and have them listen to my feelings!

    • Janice Dean says:

      Both talking and listening are good things to learn.

    • I do a lot of listening and take in what others are saying most of the time I will and my perspective on the situation..
      So yes I do learn so much from just listening, sometimes it is good and sometimes it is not so good.

    • Mandi Gilliam says:

      I would not “forgo money” to talk about myself hahah! And I always try to listen to others. How can I expect them to listen to me, If I don’t do the same and take the time to listen to what they have to say as well 🙂

      • CoffeeTime says:

        Mandi,
        But the studies show it very vividly. People would rather talk about themselves than take money.
        What it clearly shows is that our need to express and show to ourselves as well as to others the “hero” side of us, the capable side of us is really IMPORTANT!

    • I need better listening skills and will admit it. I guess I do everything 90 mph and need to slow down.

    • Jessica Parent says:

      I try to be a good listener but anytime I’m not dominating a conversation with my family and friends (and truly am “just listening” and/or letting them tell stories,vent,talk about their feelings) They think something is “wrong” with me.

      • Karen Hinkle says:

        I must say as mothers we have to listen to our children small and adult ones to and we must listen careful to them or you will miss what they are really tring to say and I don’t talk to much about me its my children I talk about I say we all have at one point not been good listeners

        • Jessica Parent says:

          It is something I am not the best at-lol which is why I’m always working on it (but it does frustrate me when I’m truly listening to a loved one and they ask “What’s the matter….why aren’t you talking?? Are you even listening to me??” )

    • Carol Yemola says:

      I used to teach a course regarding effective conversation and part of the course was to stress the importance of being a good listener. As a nurse, listening is most important when conversing with my patients.

    • Jennifer Hiles says:

      That is very interesting. I know so many people that almost never listen, they just wait to talk. Occasionally, I find myself talking away but only when I really need to. Listening is so important. I’ve tried to tell my husband that if I am “complaining” about a work problem or otherwise, I don’t want a solution, I just want someone to listen to me. I try to be an example of that.

    • Cynthia Dubuque says:

      I’ve been known to be a good listener.. It’s important, though, to avoid using the words “yeah” “uh huh” and others like that, too often. You might give the impression that you aren’t really listening or don’t care.

    • I’d rather have the the money..I think I’m a good listener..I’m so awkward with new ppl even some family I would rather listen so I don’t say something weird.

    • Rebecca Swenor says:

      I know I have always been the one people come to because I am a good listener. When people call or come to me I listen and don’t say anything until they are done unless they ask me something. I they are done they feel a lot better. By them talking and me listening they heard them self enough to figure it out for their self.

    3. Talk About Other Person’s Interests
    Yes, that fella Dale Carnegie was so right mentioning Talking About the interests and hobbies your other side of the conversation possesses in life.

    Once you find out what they are – talk about them during your conversation. Ask Questions!

    If you know enough about the subject, the similarities will bring you together with the other person(s).
    If you don’t know much – be curious, compassionate and keep asking questions showing your sincere side of wanting to learn more. That would be a sing signaling to the other person that you are sincere in your intentions.

    • thia beniash says:

      I do love to hear about others hobbies and interests. I like to found out how they got into it, honed their skill and what they are doing with their talent. you cant have too many interests and hobbies. lol. my husband would not agree with that statement. he hee

    • Janice Dean says:

      Asking questions of others is a great way to interact!

    • Mandi Gilliam says:

      I really do love that book!!!!! It was something my ex suggested I read… And I never read!! But so happy I did 🙂

    • I would love to ask question to some people as a way of interacting with them, but what happens if you come across someone you says one thing and then goes and does just the opposite of what they say? How do you react to them?

    • I really need to slow down and make more time. I think The only time for a deep conversation is in the car while driving. Sad to say but true.

      • Karen Hinkle says:

        well if you ask someone something personal I mean if you trying to get them to talk what if the question you ask is hard for them or painful how do you address that I always ask question that’s how we learn about ppl I love to know others likes and foods

    • Jessica Parent says:

      I love learning about other people….new views and opinions…a good story 😀 Without asking a lot of questions I find a lot of conversations to be superficial

    • Carol Yemola says:

      Asking questions is a great way to get verbal feedback and to assure that you really understand the essence of the conversation.

    • Jennifer Hiles says:

      If used this method before. It seems that more often than not, I don’t know a great deal about other’s hobbies or jobs but you can tell by their reactions how much they appreciate when you ask them questions about it. It works in the reverse also. I love when someone seems genuinely interested in what I have to say. It’s a good feeling.

    • Cynthia Dubuque says:

      I love learning about everything.. This would be easy for me to do 🙂

    • Thats how I connected with my father in law..I like to paint or just do anything creative. He was an art teacher..

    • Rebecca Swenor says:

      I love getting to know people and maybe that is why I am a good listener. I like to help others. When people know you are sincere they tend to be sincere. They see you do it so they may start doing it. Like a cycle.

    4. Have 3 Good Stories to Share
    Aren’t you fascinated by the stand-up comedians and artists who deliver no less fascinating talks to the audience? One of the top priorities of their profession is to memorize the stories! They have their act practiced and rehearsed many times, before it becomes a spontaneous conversation with public.

    You do not need necessarily to REHEARSE and memorize the stories! What you need to have is a few personal stories that are interesting, allow other people to see your human side, your funny side, and your willingness to open up.

    Have those stories in your arsenal to surround yourself with more people and get exposed to more people. Finally, to be remembered by them.

    • thia beniash says:

      I have lots and lots of good stories to share but i should study them to make them a bit shorter. It would be more effective. I tend to tell lots of details, better for a movie or book.

      • Karen Hinkle says:

        @Thia I feel the same way when it comes to talking about my grandson its more like a book

      • CoffeeTime says:

        GALZ,
        This thread shows HOW IMPORTANT our kids and grandkids are!
        When we open up on such intimate and very sensitive subject like KIDS, we show our vulnerability to the other side and invite them to share theirs.
        Reciprocation is Vital. This is a 2-way street.
        When it happens, great things and friendships happen!

        • Karen Hinkle says:

          Yes Laura I do agree it is like a ice breaker then we get to know these ppl and have a connection with them

          • I agree it is a two way street. But as I stated earlier I can’t seem to break the tough guy attitude with some in my family. I keep trying but to no avail. It is very frustrating to be the one who always makes the attempt and gets nothing back in return.

          • Rebecca Swenor says:

            Tammy maybe showing you are trying and not giving up will improve the relationships in time.

    • Janice Dean says:

      There is nothing like hearing a good story or telling one! Humor is very important.

    • Mandi Gilliam says:

      I love surrounding myself with people with a good sense of humor. After all laughter is the best medicine 🙂

    • I also have many stories to talk about and I also try to make them interesting. Most of them are like you said with a sense of humor. I do this to lighten the feeling in the room and put people at ease.

    • A since of humor is a start start to a conversation.

    • Jessica Parent says:

      When I was young I always had a good story to share-LOL .Now that I have a bunch of kids that I’ve been home taking care of for over a decade…I find I haven’t had a new one in a very long time (well the kids give me some but its not the same-LOL) When I was young…. people used to tell me I should be a comedian fairly often (best part was I was never trying to be funny-just sharing my life)

    • Carol Yemola says:

      I have found that telling a few interesting stories about my life can sometimes spark an expanded conversation and allow the listener to actively participate in the conversation.

    • Jennifer Hiles says:

      Wonderful idea. Whenever I’m going to a party or event where I don’t know a lot of people. I try to come up with some funny stories from my past to start a conversation. Of course, I’m a little bit shy so when I meet knew people, I often get the stories jumbled up in my head and end up saying something that sounds pointless. I’m working on it though. haha.

      • CoffeeTime says:

        Jennifer,
        I used to be like that. Then I was always looking for the ways to overcome this difficulty.
        What made a breakthrough within me was my realization that if I don’t make an effort Myself, nobody would be able to help me. It was ME, not others who could make me interesting.
        What did I do? I was the first to approach people.
        I signed up for public speech presentations.
        I volunteered to speak in Rotary clubs.
        What happened was “magical.” People started approaching me with requests to speak for their events and share what I had to share.
        Frankly, my self-improvement never stops. Being critical to myself, I drive hard to best the best. Though, I am much kinder to myself now.
        It’s been quite a process throughout life to reach every level of my communication ability with people. And this is the best part you could ever do for yourself.

        • Karen Hinkle says:

          that’s great but I don’t know if I could just go up in front of a lot of ppl who I dodnt know and speak that’s gets me scared kudos to you for being able to do that Laura you are a great speaker and a great person

          • CoffeeTime says:

            Karen,
            I started it Small: one-on-one, then at church I went to.
            When you start hearing what you say yourself, merge your words with feelings, feel the confidence you get while touching and connecting other person’s life – that’s all that’s needed to graduate from this course!

        • Maybe this is just what I need to do because I am very critical of myself and am always the one who ends up getting hurt in the end. Even tough I make every attempt to get involved. Thank you

          • Karen Hinkle says:

            @Tammy will will talk with you we are all here to help each other so what ever you need to say say it

          • Thank you Karen, but I am being put down daily by my own family. I am married to a man who has children form previous marriages. Most of the kids accept me as mom but I have one who does not. They don’t think I am apart of the family (blood related) and does everything in her power to play her dad against I. They live with us at this time and I feel very uncomfortable in my own home.

          • CoffeeTime says:

            Tammy,
            Start with a true assumption that what you say and do is based on what you know at this very moment.
            Feel not a victim to the circumstance.
            Do know that when you do and say that resonates with your gut feel, no matter what the outcome is, then you’ve done your job right! You’ve said it right, you’ve provided a win-win situation.
            Yes, some may be upset, but that is not the indication that you did something wrong.
            To verify it –> go back to your premise why you said or did it. If it felt the right way to do, reconfirm with yourself and move one.
            Other people need to learn their lessons and work on their fears and how they handle them.

          • I don’t know how to respond with this one.

          • Rebecca Swenor says:

            Here is little advice. Get to know what her interest are and maybe talk about what her interests. You, right now, are considered the evil step-mother when in fact you are not. Don’t tell her what you are doing when you find out what she likes or is interested in doing. Just make it known to her that you are interested in what she is doing or about. This doesn’t happen over night just over time. You may have to do something special alone with her to show her you care.

        • Jennifer Hiles says:

          Wow, that is amazing and inspiring. I took a public speaking class in college but it didn’t go well. Now that I’m a little older and a little more confident. I should try again.

    • Cynthia Dubuque says:

      I have a story that I made up years ago.. Whenever I tell it, it has people laughing hysterically and when I’m done the story, they ask if it was a true one (it could go both ways).. After the made up story, I tell them the way it really happened.. It’s a great story for parties.

    • I am a stay at home mom..so unless they want to talk about kids I am pretty much out of luck.

    • Rebecca Swenor says:

      I guess I like to be known as the good listener because it shows others that they never have to be alone.

    6. Exercise your Charisma
    I still remember one of the best findings I’ve ever encountered. It said that people do not remember what you said, rather they remember How They Felt. And your words, your stories made them feel that way.

    There’s an interesting piece of statistics that says words account for only 7% of what get conveyed in the conversation. Only 7%! That’s it! (Mehrabian & Ferris, 1967)

    So, be emotional, be not afraid of showing your feelings when delivering a speech or making a conversation with another person or a group of persons. Use your facial muscles – smile and laugh. Use your body movements – gesticulate. Use the power of your voice – modulate it!

    There are so many studies and research on Voice alone and how consistency in tone makes a speaker more persuasive.

    One of the studies found that and an individual with consistency in tone was perceived as having better ideas and better presentation style (impression). Better tone got them better jobs and allowed them to convince others in what they think!

    That is something to consider and learn!

    So, Afraid Be Not of using different modalities of your voice to leave your audience breathless with how simple it is to approach you and respect your ides.

    • thia beniash says:

      After reading this I thought about people i know. I do think the ones that speak in a consistent tone are more persuasive and enjoyable to listen to. One, in particular, speaks at our church often and captivates everyone with his voice. Mostly the same tone, with certain emphasis and great pause factors to let what he said take a moment to sink in. I would love to be able to speak like that. I have an issue with that… i am always loud. Not sure if its my hearing, upbringing(smallest in 8) or work related that i seem to always project my voice. Great for public speaking, not so great for everyday conversation. lol.

      • CoffeeTime says:

        Thia,
        Treasure all the benefits your Voice brings to your package!
        What would help to achieve the tone-down voice tone in one-on-one situations is Pausing before you start speaking. Smile before you speak to activate the feel-good pheromones and calm your presence. Remind yourself to be a bit less louder as you need to project with your tone rather than the pitch – then start your conversation.
        The above steps will happen in a twitch of an eye when you practice them in your mind first.
        You have a gift of voice – use it with alternating modulation and tone. You will be unconquerable!

    • Janice Dean says:

      Body language is good to know.

    • Mandi Gilliam says:

      I am an EXTREMLY emotional person and I have no problem letting those emotions show. Especially my over the top, postive, enthusiastic side! I am a social butterfly and enjoy making others happy. 🙂

      • CoffeeTime says:

        Mandi,
        Many years ago I was told that I am too expressive and too emotional in any of my interactions. That was taken by me as a negative and really made me feel not good.
        What I did then was I reevaluated my situation, my gestures, my voice and launched myself onto the path of discovery by reading up a ton of topics, working on myself, attending self-improvement seminar.
        That one comment made a huge shift in who I am today.
        I like when people are emotional and show their sincere “open-up” side of themselves. Keep it open, Mandi!

      I am VERY Emotional by nature (some would say too much so) and tend to wear my feelings on my sleeve.Keeping my tone even is not always easy -I too tend to be a “loud” talker Thia. I think for me it stems from growing up in a large family and then creating my own large family 😉 There is a lot to be said for persuasiveness of an even tone (Always catched and keeps my attention that’s for sure) . I do find body language (and learning how to “read it” to be very helpful in face to face conversations

      • Rebecca Swenor says:

        Ok Jessica one question are you Italian? Lol I grow up in a big Italian family they the woman always talked loud and with their hands.lol 🙂 Body language and eye contract is very important. 🙂

    • Carol Yemola says:

      I have found that people who exhibit these characteristics are the ones that I am drawn to for conversation. Conversation is a two way street. You feed of one another’s zest for life!

    • Jennifer Hiles says:

      When you say” consistency in tone” do you mean speaking louder consistently? I have a very small voice and I am constantly being asked “what did you say, I can’t hear you!” It’s definitely an issue I need to work on. Very interesting statistic though! 7% isn’t much!

      • CoffeeTime says:

        Jennifer,
        “Consistency” is meant by how even your voice is, without abrupt pitches, ups and downs.
        With a small voice like yours, what you could do is practice your emotional input in what you say.
        Project with your eyes, your facial expressions, make significant pauses that would make people quiet down and think – just a few things you could do and practice DAILY!
        Practice with your family and enjoy your mastery class you’re giving yourself!

    • Cynthia Dubuque says:

      7% is a number to think about.. I’ve never been good at speaking to people or in front of people.. I have anxiety and panic disorder which, sometimes, makes me stutter and unable to speak.. It’s something I should work on.. Maybe pick up those books.. Practice could be beneficial in the future for things I need to do.

    • Interesting

    • Going to have to try this on My kids to get them to clean up their mess

    • Rebecca Swenor says:

      All of this is so true. Be are attracted to the positive energy and how the person makes them feel. You can always tell when talking to a person by their body language if they are listening to you. 🙂

  8. Great info, On a daily basis we don’t start and consider are body language, facial expression when approaching others. Gives us ‘food for thought” so to speak.

  9. I try and give people the benefit of doubt when I talk to them and some are receptive where other are just fake. I am a very emotional person and one who opened up about how I was feeling, but now It seems sometimes like I am talking to a brick walls. There are a very few people who are genuinely concerned about me and how I feel. They just let me get it off my chest and cry and then try to use words and conversation to bring me back to reality. I appreciate they for helping me threw.

    • Rebecca Swenor says:

      I know how you feel. It is so true about some people. What I do when I notice they are just faking, I tell them I know your not listening and sometimes that makes them listen because they then know it is important to you for them to hear you.

      • Thank you Rebecca I just might have to give this a try in the future. 🙂

        • Rebecca Swenor says:

          The book I suggested might be a very good one for you and I hope you read it. It took a month for my relationships to show a great deal of improvement and to where it was noticeable to others how I changed.

          • Rebecca Swenor says:

            I forgot to mention after that month maybe even sooner, people were treating me with more respect also.

  10. LaKishia Wagers says:
