Ep. 74 - Conversing with Balloons
Oct 03, 2019 Season 1 Episode 74
Kris Emerson

I love great conversations!  It feels awesome to listen and be heard.  I love walking away feeling like I learned something and contributed.  We are better friends now because of that interaction.  HOWEVER, not all conversations go that way.  In fact, many times they aren't rewarding at all!  Why is that?  Well, it turns out, there is a big difference in the elements of a good conversation verses a bad one.  To help illustrate that, this episode will ask you to visualize a pocket full of balloons.  As you blow one up and extend it, that is like adding something to a conversation.  What happens next will make all the difference!

- How to understand the difference between good conversations and bad ones.

- How to use the imagery of balloons to figure out what is going wrong

- How to engage in a conversation without popping anyone's balloons

- Why is it important that we understand different types of conversations.

- What is the goal of a great conversation and what can you do to make it happen
