Notes On Small Talk

  1. The goal of small talk is to build a bridge between people. Subject is irrelevant, as long as you have one.
  2. Focus on what you'd like to learn about others and things you enjoy talking about.
  3. Ask follow-up questions and listen between the lines as well.
  4. Do not bring up emotionally upsetting topics.
  5. Avoid having one-sided conversations. If no one else knows or is interested in what you’re talking about, don't go into detail about it.
  6. The best small talk topics are those to which everyone can relate
