‘Tis the season to make sure you’re ready to mix and mingle. Some may quake at the idea of making small talk with friends of friends. You may grimace at the thought of engaging in banter with colleagues you run into on your way out of the toilet stall at work. Never fear, MavenMomma is here with conversation starters to sashay your way through the holiday season.
One caveat to all of the above conversation starts, it is best to be an active listener. Try not to listen in order to respond. One of my east favorite people to speak with are one uppers or people to ask a question to get you to ask them the same question. Be genuine in your interest and questions, as a result conversation will flow. Need some material for conversation starters. Check out my list of favorite podcast and TV shows, one of which I am sure will be discuss this season.
