People Skills: Continuing conversations

After you ask open ended questions – and the conversation is going – what then? How do you extend it, get to know someone better and actually begin to build a relationship?

You listen and follow – if you ask open ended questions and then ask other questions from the ones you asked already –

The caveat – ask the type of questions you would want the answers to –

My favorites are: What books or periodicals do you read? What animals are your favorites? Is there a favorite vacation spot or somewhere you’ve traveled you most enjoyed?

Then I will learn about the person and also – find new ideas in books, pets and places.

You create your day by the way you think. Make it magnificent!
