Break into any CliqueEver been in a conversation like this?

You: “Hi!”

Them: “Hello”

You: “How are you?”

Them: “Fine. How about you?”

You: “Great!”

…awkward silence.

Too many conversations start this way, flat line, and need CPR to bring them back.

This can lead to no second date, a negative first impression, and missed networking opportunity.

There is a better way.

Start your conversation strong and you’ll have a good conversation and leave a good impression.

After you say “Hi” or they say “Hi”, use a good question or comment to get the conversation flowing.

You: Hi

Them: Hello

You: That rain was nice

Them: Yes, it was.

You: Did it spoil your weekend plans?

Them: Yes. We were planning to camping, but went to a movie instead.

Now the conversation is flowing! You can keep flowing with more questions or using the Shask Technique.

Think of more phrases to use after “Hello” or receive a whole list in the Conversation Success System.

Don’t leave a negative impression or get mired in a conversation to nowhere. Use a comment and questions to have a dynamic conversation.
