I was chatting with someone today is clearly competent, kind, and capable. Yet, often, people never get to see that in him. Instead, they see a quiet person without a ton of engagement. This is a loss for my new friend and many who would like to get to know him.
The good news is that he is open to stretching himself. Yay! Here is one thing that he is going to do that might work for you as well. Instead of agonizing about how to become a brilliant conversationalist, he has decided to ask thoughtful questions and then give the other person his rapt attention. It is a wonderful “secret” to greater success.
Enjoy your day,
