Do you think small talk sucks?
Well, I agree. But here’s the thing.
Most small talk is lame because people tend to fall prey to all the biggest small talk mistakes. As an introvert, this is especially painful because you crave meaningful conversation.
Mindless chit chat bores you. Not only that.
It completely drains your precious energy. Then you are the one who feels guilty for not being able to talk about pointless topics for hours on end. You are left feeling misunderstood, and weird.
You might also miss out. After all, small talk seems to be the golden ticket towards so many amazing opportunities ...
Chatting up your crush, without feeling awkward and tongue-tied
Making real friendships so you can STOP constantly meeting new people
Getting that promotion at work, because, as unfair as it is, likability is a huge factor
Having good relationships with your coworkers, so you can feel more comfortable at work events
Small talk is the key to all of the above, right??
Small talk in its most common form will NOT get you very far. As an introvert, it will usually just lead to frustration and depleted energy stores. But ...
SMART small talk can be the magic ingredient for curing most of your social woes. You might be wondering ...
What is smart small talk?
Smart small talk uses interesting questions, bridge statements, and thoughtful responses to drive the conversation to more meaningful topics.
Smart small talk creates true connections, instead of just wasting time.
Smart small talk allows you to use the creative side of your brain to show your true personality, tell jokes, and feel more relaxed.
Smart small talk gives you the confidence to chat up those you secretly admire, without freezing up, and having no clue what to say.

And you really can start applying the tools right away at your next BBQ, or event with coworkers. This is what my students did:
Keith became instantly popular at work:
"Hello Michaela thanks for he small talk masterclass. I took the advice from it and the best thing now is that I am now the most popular person at work and I can connect with people outside of work, it is like I can meet any new person and make them feel comfortable and interested in me. I will admit I like to come home and unwind by myself, yet it feels great to be participating in social circles and have fun." - Keith H., U.S.A
Amy had meaningful conversations at a BBQ:
"The conversation ignitors were put into practice at a recent Labor Day Barbecue. While I do like meeting new people, the whole experience of socializing can be exhausting to say the least. At this barbecue, I found myself much more present and grounded. I was able to interact with those present without becoming overwhelmed, overloaded. I had some great conversations that night, was able to expand upon initial introductions, using what the other person stated and go from there. The topics of conversation ranged from comparing notes about online dating experiences (good and not-so-good), the increased presence of allergies (do GMOs and overuse of soil play a role); neuroplasticity, church, and "glamping. Thank you for opening my eyes to better ways of communication. And thank you, especially, for helping me to learn more about myself in a compassionate, accepting, and loving way. That makes all the difference!" - A. Lavelle, U.S.A
Jenny felt more relaxed in conversation and stood out at work:
"I have been trying to use the jump-off points in conversation, and it works, I don't have to worry about how to respond to when someone tells me something. My brain feels more relaxed, and I feel more at ease in conversation. And one celebration I have to share with you is my consultant said that I have improved comparing to when we first and second met. I have a warm greeting, I speak louder, and express more. I think this course has inspired and helped me.” - Jenny L. Macau
Helena authentically conneced with her coworkers:
"I was very suprised when I yesterday could turn a very tense social situationen to a warm and heartwarming one … So I [followed your advice] and this is what really suprised me. Because when I did it gave a lot of "social fruit", my colleague became a lot more at ease with me and we laughed and had a really good time! At the end of the day she even hugged me and we thanked eachother for a really nice day! I mean, I couldnt even imagine that it could go so well, I am actuallt blown away with the result :). I didnt even share deep personal stuff about myself just some things I have an opinion about and how I work as a person." - Helena Skagerlid, Sweden
