Meaningful Conversations

“One of the most eye-opening realizations I had in our weekend away was the profound LACK of meaningful conversations at work and in our personal lives.” – Michele M. Martin

For some people, the workplace is full of conversations, but most of them are transactional. We spend 40, 50, even 60 hours at work, and the lack of meaningful conversation can dull our minds.

I found two posts that help me find ways to develop a habit of meaningful conversation:

“Don’t get too excited about your next thought. People can tell when you aren’t truly listening because you just can’t wait to spit your next thought out.” ā€“ John Hall (read his 12 other tips)

“I came prepared with three questions that I felt would cultivate a meaningful dialogue.” ā€“ Amber Rae (read her full post)
