“Find common ground.” Author: Steve H.
I love this simple quote because it says so much! So, the next time you find yourself surrounded by complete strangers, or just people you don’t know very well and you’re at a loss for words, remember that there’s always a common ground between you! Just make sure the topic is easy and non-threatening. You don’t want to debate, you just want to strike a short and sweet conversation to break the ice. If you both have kids on the same baseball team; then, pitch another parent a nice complement about how well her son plays ball. If it’s the beginning of summer, ask about fun vacation plans. Before you know it, you’ll be chatting up a storm!
