Compelling Convos Ep. 14 How To Avoid The Spring-Loaded Response Trap

Have you ever been talking to someone and it seems like they already know what they’re going to say, and they’re just waiting for you to stop talking so they can say what they want? I call this the “spring-loaded response trap” and it signals to the other person that you’ve checked out of the conversation. (Not a good look if you want to have better interactions with other people.) Often, this happens because people lock on to something they KNOW they can respond to in conversation. And then they stop listening. If you feel like you may be guilty of this…in this episode, we'll cover what you can do about it. --- Be sure to go to Become More Compelling and get your free 56-minute audio guide on joining & enjoying group conversations.
