  • When your job hinges on how well you talk to people, you learn a lot about how to have conversations — and that most of us don't converse very well. Celeste Headlee has worked as a radio host for decades, and she knows the ingredients of a great conversation: Honesty, brevity, clarity and a healthy amount of listening. In this insightful talk, she shares 10 useful rules for having better conversations. "Go out, talk to people, listen to people," she says. "And, most importantly, be prepared to be amazed." TEDTalks is a daily video podcast of the best talks and performances from the TED Conference, where the world's leading thinkers and doers give the talk of their lives in 18 minutes (or less).

    The real problem is whoever has clicked this video is already willing to talk and listen, but those who are not, they just skipped this video. Those are the ones that need this lesson.

    "Enter every conversation assuming that you have something to learn." "Most of us don't listen with the intent to understand-- we listen with the intent to reply." "Be interested in other people." "Be prepared to be amazed."

    the last point: Listen. I feel that my problem is I listen too much and sometimes don't know how to react to it.

    You'd be surprised how much a person will reveal if you just listen. In a world where everyone is talking, people truly want to be heard.
