“The art of good conversation is an art. There are no hard fast rules. Conversation is an improvisation. It happens in the moment. It’s about a toolbox that you bring to that improvisation. The more tools in your toolbox the better the conversation is going to be. The more options you’re going to have.
“Some people have different sized toolboxes. Part of the skill of sharing good conversation is about sharing some of those different tools, those different skills.
“We learn good music by playing with people with people who are better than us. We learn any good art by participating by doing it with people who bring more to the table, who have more experience in that medium.”
Dan Post Senning, The Emily Post Institute
