People often underestimate the advantages of being a good conversationalist. Having the power of conversation on your side can open a lot of doors for you and your business. Though there is a fine line to tread between being persuasive and being manipulative.
In today’s episode of A Week in Review, Jaime and Sara discuss the power of conversation.
The Advantages of a Good Conversation
Being able to communicate properly with your peers, employees, and clients is important in any business. You will find that properly expressing your thoughts and ideas through open communication can open more doors for you than raw numbers and data.
Still, what does it take to have a good conversation?
Jaime and Sara’s Thoughts on the Power of Conversation
Conversations have a lot to do with communication, expectations, relationships, and it can easily spell the difference between manipulation and persuasion.
As per Jaime, for you to be more on the persuasive side rather than manipulative, always try to be yourself when you are conversing with others. Let your true personality come out, rather than just showing the façade you want them to see.
What Happened This Week?
Last Sept. 29th, we celebrated the Quit Repeating Yourself Day. This is to remind business owners and entrepreneurs to declutter and organize their systems and processes. This is so that moving forward, they can focus on more important aspects of their business.
We started Quit Repeating Yourself Day to remind ourselves at least once a year to check and realign ourselves, so we don’t end up repeating the same mistakes or bogging ourselves with mundane things.
