When your job hinges on how well you talk to people, you learn a lot about how to have conversations — and that most of us don't converse very well. Celeste Headlee has worked as a radio host for decades, and she knows the ingredients of a great conversation: Honesty, brevity, clarity and a healthy amount of listening. In this insightful talk, she shares 10 useful rules for having better conversations. "Go out, talk to people, listen to people," she says. "And, most importantly, be prepared to be amazed."

Impressive speech, method of delivery was spot on, funny/enjoyable to listen/watch, and absolutely perfect conversation tips/reminders!!! It was informationally packed, direct and to the point, relatable, and helpful to anyone. 😂🎉
Coming back from the Jim Jeffries video about being ugly...trying to develop my people skills because I need it XD. Just remember mah fellow ugly ladies and dudes, or even mah average looking ladies and dudes, we're much more easy to approach so if you're fun to talk to too you'll be just as good at making friends as anybody else!
On the topic of relating to someone as they convey a tale of frustration or pain there is a fine line where an individual wants you to relate to them and share a similar story of your own so they don’t feel awkward and alone but generally they just want you to listen.
Super good lesson on genuine/best conversation rules. Sometime after getting married, being an intelligence and law enforcement officer, and then dating in 201x after a rough divorce, I learned how to practice not being judgmental and disliking someone for differences or first impressions...because oftentimes they were wrongly interpreted (by me). It's allowed me to appreciate most people, stranger or confidant. Now I only discount the conversations of dirt bags that purposefully or carelessly hurt or abuse people, unless they have repented and made up whatever they can for their harm and are humble thereafter.
There are a few components to handwriting improvement . A resource I found that successfully combines these is the Secret Smart Scripter (look for it on google) definately the most helpful treatment that I've found. Check out all the super information .

"A good conversation is like a miniskirt; short enough to retain interest, but long enough to cover the subject."
As a person who can appreciate a great conversation, I can appreciate the wisdom in the quote from the Presenter's sister. Looking forward to more discussions by Celeste Headlee on TED Talks platform.
TeD wat she seD. Growing as a teen I can recall talkin to one another and whoever brought out the ball during the daytime weather permit called what game we were going to play first from volleyball to football as I growed up and eventually became a sales rep I learned that I got better response from clients when I listened to what they had to say and especially calling them by name and referencing a past conversation to there personal concern and it occurred to me that people like to be remembered in some small way at best and more likely to respond positively, so that aside not only did I have better customer relation but also made good friends and good time 😃 Indeed
I used to be so shy I couldn't say a word to people. Now been trying to make friends online I talk too much n probbaly say more than I need too.. Pretty sure that's why people stopped replying me now lol..
us older folk REALLY need to take #8 to heart- for the love of all that is good, PLEASE stop interrupting your own stories to spend long awkward moments growing more and more annoyed with yourselves as you stand there riffling through the back drawers of your dusty mental file cabinets for the name of a person/a specific place/a particular date etc. that relates to the story you are telling but escapes you at the moment. i am not being mean- i love stories! i do not need to know the exact date/time/place/name to enjoy your stories! you are doing a thing that, as i get older, i understand because it happens to me too. so, what she said: stay out of the weeds!!
It’s amazing how wrong this girl is. Things like referencing Bill Idiot who lies about the causes of global warming, when anyone with a brain can go to any web site and see the list of green house gases and the causes. It turns out that over 90% is water vapor from the oceans, and humans can only contribute less than 2%. The only reason I can see for her even mentioning him must be to help companies who make sense anti pollution equipment. Another thing she said is to never repeat yourself. Any speaker knows that the more you say something, the more likely the person will hear it. That is why most politicians do it, and even trial court lawyers do it. Another concept she didn’t seem to address is that most people are sheep and stubbornly repeat something that they were told by someone they think has some authority. You can’t even have a debate with someone like that, because they have no rational proof for what they are saying. The only thing she got right, was when she said just get out of the conversation.
Denny why your fake science politics? Here something real. Both party's suck !! When Corporations take over our government it is Corporate style of Communism . Since Jan 20th 1981 corrupt Right Wing Trickle down Corporate Globalist economy. The Right wing's Wall street syndicate caused all the recessions , Reagan's 1981 and 1987 Black Monday, H W Bush 1990, GW Bush 2001 and 2008 the second biggest ever, and Trump's the next one , soon to visit a Main St. near you. Wages vs cost of living have lagged behind at an average rate of 2%, adjusted for inflation for three decades. We now work for 1/2 price. Now the Lefty's are riding the Corporate money wagon. So Sad. P.S. Hoover's 1929 Depression was the biggest one ever.
I'm so guilty. My way of showing someone that I understand what they are going through is to equate my experience with theirs. In honesty, my thinking is that if I can't understand what they are going through then clearly they are talking to the wrong person. And why strike up a conversation with someone who has nothing in common with you? Is the problem with me? I don't think so. Isn't that why we all know people we don't want to converse with? Maybe that's why I'd rather not have conversation with people but somehow people want to find a confidant in me. I'm not even good at keeping secrets. People are weird and complex????
I still can’t connect with humans, I suck. Can’t even connect with my GF of 3+ years. It’s depressing. Therapy hasn’t been helping either.... I still watch this video and practice my best. I’m only 28 so I still got a little life left in me.
I see listening is so important thing. Please advise me this case. In the Asian classroom, the students listen to the teacher talking only. They are so quiet and just listen to their teacher without asking question or talk about how they feel. Now many people see it's so harmful for students here. They learnt in an effective way. They need to speak up and challenge their teacher and asking for more understanding. What do you think?
I feel like this is why people watch so much YouTube, TV or Netflix; they just don't really listen to what's been said & let their minds wander off (because of that, people speak at 250 words per minute but we can listen to 500 wpm, thing..
