My friend and fellow Communication Expert Mark Bowden was recently on the TV show The Social, and revealed some great verbal and non-verbal communication tips for us to use or avoid when in conversation. Many people have a difficult time with the art of small talk, not only with getting the conversation started, but with keeping it going and making it more meaningful. This lack of confident communication can affect us both at work and in our social lives.
One of my most popular communication coaching programs (and has been for a number of years) is called “The Art of Small Talk & Winning First Impressions.” It’s no wonder it’s so popular – small talk is no small matter! 🙂 If this topic interests you and you would like to improve your soft skills, here are some useful links for you to explore. Enjoy!
