Take it from an Expert Talker, you’re not going to get every conversation right. You’re going to mess up. You’re going to ask a question that didn’t come out right or make a statement that could be taken the wrong way. It doesn’t lessen your status as an Influential Conversationalist, it makes you human.
You can lessen the impact of those moments by having relationships where people assume the best instead of the worst.
Take time to build relationships and you’ll worry less about someone trying to find a reason to be mad at you or taking offense to a conversation mistake.
