Better Meeting Arrangement and Opportunities for Conversation: To have a meaningful discussion, enough opportunities must be available to talk to that person. This allows opening up to others. Along with this, the arrangement of the meeting should be such that it is comfortable for both the persons.
Speak less, listen more – To become a better listener, the most important thing is to speak less and give a chance to the other person to speak. It takes patience to keep listening to others continuously. Simultaneously, clear your mind and focus entirely on what another person is saying.
Give importance to silence too – During a conversation, silence sometimes makes you feel awkward. But remember, silence during a conversation sometimes becomes very deep and meaningful.
