In an age of hyper-connectivity, the power and art of conversations is being lost. Conversation is not a simple exchange of information between people, it is much more.
At times, it can be a process to clarify your own thinking, it can present an opportunity to be educated, and it can be a creative spark that changes your whole life. It can give a voice to the voiceless.
Conversation build your health, happiness and longevity. Conversation means taking time to stop and chat with people and having people over.
Your purpose is not to win; it is to help the other person feel that you respect, enjoy, support and care for them. The goal is to connect.
True attentiveness signals respect for people of all ranks and roles, a sense of curiosity, and a degree of humility.
