Conversation Evaluation 18 Jul 2018

The Issue

During conversations I frequently change the subject or the style of the conversation. In short (see image) I change the 'scope'. This is not always appreciated and I want to grow in awareness. I made a small checklist that may help me to evaluate my style of conversation.

Framing

In my verbal communication I will try to practice:
1st Explain what my purpose is and then
2nd Ask a question

Example:
"I would like to go to a movie. Do you have plans for this afternoon?"

That saves the receiver of the message the effort to figure out what I am after when I directly would ask: "Do you have plans for this afternoon?"
