Small Talk: Listen THEN respond!

Small talk is just that. It's unwise to go into taboo topics like politics or religion. In some circles, other things may also be taboo. When new to a group or a person, look at body language and listen intently for a bit. I learn so much about a person from doing this. Most people make the mistake of listening to prepare a response rather than hearing what the other person is saying first, and then responding! 

Looking at body language will also tell you how a person is feeling during small talk. Are they getting upset, or are they happy with where your small talk is going? If you pay attention, you will be able to gauge a persons discomfort and change your responses wisely.

What seems  neutral for one person is not always neutral to another. My suggestion is to be at your best and pay attention so you head off any issues before they snowball!
