How to Engage in Effective Conversation
Hutchins, Robin L.
Online Submission
Conversation skills are essential for success in social, school, and business settings. They are foundational to deep relationships and lifelong friendships. Job applicants leave a more favorable impression with good conversation skills. Employees with these skills are more likely to climb the company ladder than those who struggle with conversation. Research suggests that good conversation skills can lead to peer acceptance and a safer school environment. Through lecture, small and large group activities, participants are taught these skills. Then they are given the opportunity to practice the steps to effective conversation. Participants complete a pretest so they can chart progress and create goals. A posttest is given at the end of the unit. A bibliography is included.
