Last week I had the privilege of delivering the Keynote speech at the Leadership Conference for the Women of Wind Energy. I had been asked help the attendees learn how to have meaningful conversations in their every day lives.
As many of your know, we learn best what we teach. In the process of researching and assembling my talk, I struggled with the fact that I have never mastered the art of small talk. I am fairly task oriented and if I am going to talk with someone, I want to know what the purpose is for this conversation!
What I learned was that the same principles that I use in helping speakers with their lectures apply to small talk:
My favorite lectures contain three elements: a personal connection to the speaker, a solution to a problem and an emotional journey. It turns out that small talk is no different. And by the way, both take planning and practice!
