The Art of Captivating Conversation
How to Be Confident, Charismatic, and Likable in Any Situation
The Art of Captivating Conversation is a book for enhancing social skills and developing conversation starters—how to have a deeper connection with people, with tips based on human and social psychology as well as the author's observations and proven coaching techniques. Readers will learn the basics of what makes a good interaction, as well as a plethora of highly-actionable techniques to become more confident, charismatic, and likable. For example:
- If your conversations are boring, it may be because you don't know yourself—your experiences or opinions—so you have little to share
- Most people ask bad questions because they are either too specific (what's your favorite movie?) or too broad (what is your passion?)
- If you need a witty comeback to an insult, simply agree with the insult and amplify it to an outlandish degree. This shows security and wit.
