  5. 5. Ask questions with out interrogating the person Many a good conversation begins with questions BUT The person you're talking to should not feel as if he's being interviewed at a police station.
  6. 6. Be funny This doesn't mean that you have to do a stand-up routine but just throw in some jokes and tell them a funny story to break the ice
  7. 7. Ask open ended questions These are questions that require more than a yes or no for an answer. Open ended questions allow people to elaborate and this creates conversation
  8. 8. Know what not to do •Don’t reveal over personal info •Don’t spend the whole time talking about yourself •Pay attention- don’t forget the person’s name
