Sadly, they are often unaware of it.

They may think other people are the problem when it is really them.

Do you do any of these?

 

  • Hog the conversation by talking all the time and looking mad when the other person tries to have a turn.

 

  • Look bored when the other person is talking.

 

  • Have closed body language with arms folded and a scowl painted across your face

 

  • Try to One-Up the other person by

 

  • Give one word answers and uninteresting answers

 

  • Argue every little point instead of seeking to find out why the other person thinks the way they do (Power tip).

 

  • Looking over your shoulder or scanning the room for someone else to talk to.

 

  • Continually checking your phone or texting.

 

  • Standing in the corner with your arms folded and expecting people to come talk to you.

 

  • Having a chip on your shoulder and a sour attitude

Replace these irritating habits and be a Success in Conversation with the Conversation Success System.
