Even though you may interact with team members on a regular basis, some may still feel like strangers to you. The best way to create the foundation for professional relationships is by connecting with others as individuals, looking beyond their role in the organization. Great conversationalists put others at ease, build trust, and improve teamwork. You will learn a proven process for connecting with others through effective and engaging conversations. Build questioning skills that help you start a conversation and engage in ways that helps you learn from others. Using the seven keys to being a great conversationalist, you will be able to strike up a conversation with anyone and keep it going naturally and productively. Leaders who connect with others have stronger professional relationships. Strong relationships lead to improved results. Dale Carnegie was first to recognize you can win friends and influence people through the ability to converse competently. Connect through conversation and master an art of engagement that makes you a leader others want to emulate. Improved conversation skills enable you to get to know people more naturally. When you connect through meaningful conversation, others grow to trust you more. Through these trusting relationships, collaboration improves, and you and your colleagues will more easily work together to produce increased results.
