On this episode of Become More Compelling Radio I'd like to introduce you to my friend Dan Chang (@friendformula) founder of The Friend Formula.
A former self-descibed shy guy, nine years ago Dan decided to start learning about social skills so that he could perform at a high level in his career.
He's gone from someone who was too shy to speak up in meetings, to giving presentations to executives. (Dan's small talk tips are great)
In this conversation, we discuss how to become better at small talk than 99% of people. I love Dan's advice because it's so easy to implement.
If you've ever fiddled with your phone instead of striking up a conversation with someone you've wanted to meet, this podcast is for you.
In this episode you'll learn:
- 13:55 How to make yourself comfortable before you even open your mouth.
- 15:50 A simple tip that Dan's boss gave him: You don't have to have a great idea to say something.
- 30:50 Dan's 3 step framework for mastering small talk
