In an era driven by technology, many of the conversations we would have face-to-face are now taking place digitally. “10 Ways to Have Better Conversations,” by Celeste Headlee is a Ted talk you shouldn’t miss. Drawn from years of experience in news and broadcasting, Celeste’s ingredients are an antidote to the bad habit of listening to reply rather than comprehending. “I came to realize that conversational competence might be the single most overlooked skill we fail to teach. [We] spend hours each day engaging with ideas and each other through screens, but rarely have an opportunity to hone interpersonal communications skills.” Take ten minutes to watch this talk and see how it can improve your interactions at work, with friends, and at home.
