The Art of Confident Conversation

by Mike Moore

When I first started speaking for a living I had great difficulty with one-on-one
conversation with members of my audience. I could speak before 2500 people and enjoy
every minute of it, but when I was expected to mix and mingle my tongue became all
thumbs. I decided to get to work improving my conversation skills and researched the
topic thoroughly. My efforts paid off for now I can speak with anyone, anywhere for any
length of time. Let me share with you what I learned.

There are three fundamental principles upon which good conversation is based.
1. It is better to be interested than interesting
2. There is nothing as flattering as the undivided attention of another human being.
3. People long to talk about their favourite topic which is “themselves.” Keep these
in mind and you can’t fail in becoming a great conversationalist.

*Assume the responsibility for starting and maintaining the conversation.
I usually begin with a friendly ” Hi, I’m Mike Moore and I’m from Canada”
Usually the response is ” Hello, Mike I am ____________ and I’m
from___________. (Away you go.)

*Use the person’s name throughout the conversation. It shows that you’re interested
in and focused on the other.

*Let the other be the centre of attention.

*Show a genuine interest in the one you’re speaking with.

*Maintain eye contact.

*Ask questions that require more than a one word answer.

*When you ask a question listen attentively to the answer and be quick to ask
another question arising from the response to the first. You learn what to say by
listening carefully to what was said.

*Put the other at ease by smiling and nodding frequently throughout the conversation.

*Talk in terms of the other person’s interests.

*Don’t feel the need to disagree until you get to know the person better.

GREAT CONVERSATION PHRASES CONVERSATION STARTERS
“That’s interesting. Tell me more.”
“Give me an example of what you mean.”
“How would you like to see it turn out?”
“How did you feel when that happened to you?”
*Give a compliment.
*Ask for advice.
*Seek help with something.
*Give praise.
*Seek an opinion.

 

I keep six honest servants
They taught me all I know.
Their names are what and why and when
And how and where and who.
R. Kipling

Unleash the Social Butterfly Within You

Are you sick and tired of being a tongue tied wallflower in every situation??
  Discover How To Overcome Shyness and Connect with People

 


Hi Friend.

My name is Mike Moore and I want to tell you my shyness story and see if it connects with yours.

When I was a teenager many moons ago I was so shy that people felt sorry for me. I was 6’3″ tall and was  130 pounds of rippling muscle.  I really did look like a broomstick with glasses.

I could be the life of the party at home with my family but out in public….NO WAY!

I remember the day I took things into my own hands and decided to do something about it.

I read dozens of books on overcoming shyness, gaining self confidence and making friends.  I made notes and started to put into practice what I had learned from my research.

My research and hard work paid off  in a very short time.  With practice and determination I went from shy guy to social butterfly.   The more people responded positively to me  the more confidence I developed and the more comfortable I felt in social situations.

Today I make my living speaking to large and small groups throughout Canada and the USA  on maximizing human potential.  I meet with CEOs and managers of large successful companies and I feel right at home sharing my ideas and opinions.

My shyness is gone and my confidence level is high. I am no better than anyone else but I am no less than anyone either.  We are all equal in dignity to everyone else on this planet.

I want the same for you.   I want you to awaken the social giant within you. I want you be become  confident and comfortable in all social situations.   I want you to let your personality shine through to others and let them enjoy the gift that you are.

I don’t want you to settle for ANYTHING LESS.

That’s why I wrote my special report ” How to Overcome Shyness and Connect with People.”  It contains all the strategies I used to overcome the terrible scourge of shyness.

Keep reading….

 

Is This You???

I feel panic in social situations

I hate people saying I’m shy in front of others even though
they are right

I feel inadequate

I wish I could be more assertive

I am tongue-tied at every a party I attend
I wish I could disappear in social settings

I am a total flop in the romance department

I never know what to say

 

STOP HIDING AND START LIVING!
Awaken Your Social Butterfly Within!

Words Can Wound-Words Can Heal

Let me tell you a true story story…

There I was, 17 years old, 6’3″tall and weighing 129 pounds of rippling, power packed muscle. I really did look like a broomstick with glasses.

I was standing in front of a full length mirror combing my hair when my aunt, who was visiting from out of town, passed by, looked at me and said,” You know Mike it’s a damn good thing God gave you personality because he sure didn’t give you looks.” She laughed and moved on past me.

I just stood there in shock and disbelief not knowing what to say.

If you were standing in my place and heard these words directed at you how would you have felt?

I didn’t realize the long term impact her words would have on me during the coming years and how I would struggle to heal and grow beyond their bite.

For many years after I was married whenever my wife and I were dressed to go out on the town she would look at me with admiration and say, “Mike, do you ever look handsome.”

For a long time my response would be, “Carol, I’m clean and I smell good but don’t get carried away.”

The lesson I learned from this is clear: We don’t always know how our words affect others. Once they leave our mouth it’s impossible to get them back and their negative, destructive impact can remain for years.

Because of this hurtful event I became committed to monitoring my mouth to make certain I didn’t hurt others in the name of trying to be funny. Being human, I sometimes fail but when I do I immediately say I’m sorry and get back on track.

I ask you… can you relate to this story? Has something like this ever happened to you? How did you handle it and how did you overcome the negative impact on your life?

This is just one of the stories from Mike’s Top Selling book “Embracing the Mystery” (Living the Life You Want) you’ve got to get your copy of this fantastic book at http://motivationalplus.com/cgi/a/t.cgi?mystery

Both my daughter and I have finished reading your book, “Embracing the Mystery.” What a great read! Thank you for writing it… Very Uplifting. John M. Ontario Canada

1. Develop an interest in people and become other oriented.
2. Know what people need and then try to meet those needs.
3. Ask about their family and be genuinely interested in their answer.
4. Find people doing something right and praise them generously.
5. Believe in the collective wisdom of the group.
6. Talk in terms of a person’s main interest….THEMSELVES.
7. Always look directly at the person you are speaking to.
8. Laugh at yourself. When you do you give people permission to laugh at themselves.
9. Start believing that people are your most valuable resource.
10.Always give credit, don’t take credit.
11.Care about the health and well being of people.
12. When you must correct another person always do so gently and in private.
13. Always give another person the benefit of the doubt.
14. Never treat people like numbers or things.
15. Learn and use their first names.
16. Never give the impression that you are too busy or rushed to care.
17. Never use sarcasm in conversation. It’s a low form of humor and can be hurtful.
18. Never try to make yourself look good by making someone else look bad.
19. Share cute, funny, clean stories with those you work with and invite them to do likewise.
20. Laugh and play together as a group. There is a bonding power in laughter and play.
21.When you do or say something hurtful always be big enough to apologize. ” I’m sorry ” is one of the most powerful phrases in any language
22. Smile. There is power in a smile and life is just too short not to.

TESTIMONIALS

“We brought Mike in to speak to two very different groups: once for thirty people who all work in the same department, and then for a group of over 300 teachers from ESL programs in several communities across Ontario. It doesn’t seem to matter how many people you put in front of him — but Mike’s skill with the larger group was truly impressive.

It’s fascinating to watch someone keep 300 people mesmerized for over three hours. He was definitely the one in charge, but the audience felt like they were part of the presentation. It’s quite wonderful to sit and laugh for hours at a time … it’s later that you recognize just how profound Mike’s message is.”
