“How to Start a Conversation and Make Friends Summary”

Have you ever felt incapable of starting a conversation? Do you feel as if most of them look something like this, this or this?

Time to change that.

And the most important lesson you should learn is that all conversations begin before they actually begin. Just like there is such thing as pre-suasion, there is also such thing as pre-discussion.

Or, in other words (that is not a pun, is it?) – it’s carried out through your body.

That’s right: body language is not something of note in business discussions only. It’s something important in everyday discussions as well.

Primarily, we must discover what do we first notice when we meet new people? Indeed, the body language has a significant role in improving or worsening the first impression.
