Role of Small Talks to speak with new people

Picture the scene – a relaxing Sunday afternoon finds you sitting at a sidewalk cafe with a good friend. You are relaxed, having fun and enjoying the good weather.

Then out of the blue the owner of the adjacent restaurant pops his head around the corner and calls you over to meet some people.

All of a sudden you find yourself sitting down to join a table of five complete strangers who are engrossed in their own conversations.

What would you do in this situation?

Would you tense up and get stuck for words? Maybe you would
try too hard to be liked and end up looking desperate. That is what many people end up doing.

Thankfully, I no longer fear situations like these in fact I had a lot of fun yesterday when this exact scenario played out for me. I had a blast meeting these new people and I plan to meet one of the group next week because we
hit it off so well.

Two tips:

  • Peter.W.Murphy says, we always should ask questions to start a conversation
  • Second one is, use as many as required Small talk questions

After reading it, you may ask that where I will get more details on questions. Just bring these world-famous e-books- get yourself ahead in your team/career/business.
