The Good Conversationalist

How we speak is just as important as what we actually say. And what we choose not to say may be just as powerful as what we do. People who converse well think clearly before sharing their thoughts and ideas and are able to respectfully listen when it is not their turn to talk. Whether you are speaking for pleasure, out of sympathy, or in business, remember that it takes more than one person to have a conversation.
