Tasks

Be efficient with your speaking. Try to remove all types of filler words like, "Uhm, Like, I Guess, Well, Uhhhhh, You Know." These words bring no value to the conversation and they literally mean nothing.

Once

Use Pauses to emphasize. Take time to “draft” in your head what you want to say.

Conversational threading, means the ability to branch off into different topics. When given the opportunity to branch off into different topics, choose one that you are interested in talking about. Don't make the conversation one sided. You want to be sharing information about yourself as much as possible to build a connection.

Once

Use statements instead of questions. Use story opinion statements which is basically a statement that tells a small story or shows your opinion on something and it gives the other person opportunities to talk about different topics. Cold read statements are useful too. It is an observation that you make about the other person.

Once

Use humour in your conversation.

Storytelling. Tell a captivating and exciting story which will allow strangers to jump into your world.
