Introduction to How to Be Conversational
Welcome to the How to Be Conversational course! We’re glad you’re here and hope you’re excited to get started. Before you get started, here’s an overview of what you can expect from this course:
Why we created this course – In the Making New Connections course, we discussed many ways you can get out and start meeting new networking contacts. You need to be able to carry on conversations with people to build a connection and further develop the relationship. One of the most common questions we have heard about networking is “What do I talk about?”. This course was designed to help you figure out exactly how to carry on a conversation with a networking contact.
Who this course is for – This course is designed for anyone who has ever felt like they weren’t sure what to talk about or how to behave during a conversation with someone. It is probably most relevant to those who are not already experienced networkers, but it can also be beneficial for those who have been networking for a while as there is always room to learn something new.
In this course, we will cover the following lessons:
- Course Introduction
- It Starts with Your Mindset
- Topics Worth Discussing
- Conversation Pitfalls
- Asking Thoughtful Questions
- Body Language & Tone Matter
- Taking Action: Setting Yourself Up for Success
- Course Recap
