Social Skills Pro Tips πŸ’―πŸ’―

1. Ask open ended questions; Yes or No questions stop a conversation quickly.

2. Remember the name of the person you’re talking to, and try to use it in conversation so they know you remembered it. This makes them feel important and listened to!

3. Really listen when people talk and ask follow up questions. Encourage others to talk about themselves!

4. What is a question you wish someone would ask you? You could ask another person that same question.

5. Pay attention to your body language! If your arms are crossed or your head is hung, you might be communicating that you don’t want people to talk to you!
