Becky and Diana help you navigate the nuances of small talk so you can make better connections with people. 

  • Being able to communicate with a group cements you as part of that group.
  • Although small talk can be tedious, getting too deep too quickly in a conversation can also be awkward.
  • When approaching a group listen for an opportunity to connect or comment about what they’re talking about.
  • Listening with non-verbal acknowledgement is a great way to validate someone.
  • Eye contact is essential.
  • Gestures like touching your nose occasionally or using your hands, draws a person’s attention to you.
  • Ask questions to connect with the group.
  • In a social situation start with people and groups where success is most likely.
  • The goal is to be comfortable in the group.
  • Don’t be afraid of silence, it often makes room for profound comments.
