As we are enjoying the holiday break and spending time with family and friends, really take a moment to focus on your conversation skills. Most of us (me especially) think we are much better at this than we truly are. We wait for a break in the talking so we can add our “me too” story and are not truly listening. Really listen to the other person and instead of adding a “me too”; ask more about the experience they are sharing. It is so much more fun to learn from someone else.
