Leave enough room to not only speak, but to hear each person’s words clearly.
Do not talk for the mere sake of talking.
Do not engage in gossip or other degrading conversation.
Do engage in conversation that perplexes the mind.
Do engage in meaningful and friendship-building conversation.
Be open-minded and respectful of everyone’s words.
Always wait for an invitation to share your opinion, or ask if you may provide your opinion. An opinion forced is an opinion resented.
It’s okay to partake in silly conversation; we can’t be serious all the time.
Do be sensitive of what you’re talking or joking about.
A successful conversation will leave you feeling balanced in both listening and sharing your ideas.
