Be a Brilliant Conversationalist (post from Kirk Weisler)

talking

William King said, “A gossip is one who talks to you about other people.  A bore is one who talks to you about himself.  A brilliant conversationalist is one who talks to you about yourself.”

From John Maxwell’s book, How Successful People Think:

Forget About:  Searching for ways to make yourself look good.  Instead, search for ways to make others look good.

Do it:  Give everyone you meet the Triple-A Treatment — attention, affirmation, and appreciation.

Remember:  Within the first thirty seconds of a conversation, say something encouraging.  Compliment them or validate something they just said.
