A wise woman knows how to carry herself in a lively and stimulating conversation. A lady can make anyone feel at ease while talking to them. After leaving a conversation with a godly woman, a person should feel uplifted and edified.
Be Attentive. Looking at the person while they are speaking shows respect and that you're interested in what they are saying. But be careful not to stare someone down. It will only make them feel uncomfortable or intimidated.
It's Not About You. What makes a lady hospitable and friendly? Focus on what others have to say. Ask questions and be genuinely concerned in what they have to say. Know when enough is enough. Too many questions may seem like an interrogation, especially when addressing men.
Address The Person by Name. It is personal and sets people at ease. Let your tone be pleasant and kind. Too much of a good thing can be bad so don't overdo it with the name. You may come off sounding pretentious.
Agree to Disagree. You can do this with integrity. Instead of saying "undeniably" or unquestionably," say, "I understand it to mean..."
Avoid Gossip and Odd Jokes. The difference between a lady and a fool is integrity. Show that you have it. Talking about someone or laughing at their expense is hurtful and will tarnish your personal and professional reputation.
Avoid Discussing Controversial Topics. They lead to irritating differences of opinion and open quarrels which leaves a coolness of feeling between people.
I hope these suggestions help you in developing better communication with others.
