How to Have a Good Conversation | Celeste Headlee | TEDxCreativeCoast

When your job hinges on how well you talk to people, you learn a lot about how to have great conversations – and most of us don’t converse very well. A great conversation requires a balance between talking and listening. This balance is important because bad communication leads to bad relationships, at home, at work, everywhere.

Celeste Headlee has worked in public radio since 1999, as a reporter, host, and correspondent. She was the Midwest Correspondent for NPR before becoming the co-host of the PRI show The Takeaway. She also guest hosted a number of NPR shows including Tell Me More, Talk of the Nation, Weekend All Things Considered, and Weekend Edition.

Celeste holds multiple degrees in music and still performs as a professional opera singer. She's the granddaughter of composer William Grant Still, the Dean of African American Composers. Celeste is an avid hiker, biker, paddler and dog walker.

We Need to Talk: How To Have Conversations That Matter | Celeste Headlee | Talks at Google

In We Need to Talk: How to Have Conversations that Matter, Celeste Headlee states that most of us communicate from behind electronic screens and studies show that Americans feel less connected and more divided than ever before. The blame for some of this disconnect can be attributed to our political landscape, but the erosion of our conversational skills as a society lies with us as individuals and the only way forward is to start talking to each other. In We Need to Talk, she outlines the strategies that have made her a better conversationalist-and offers simple tools that can improve anyone’s communication. Whether you’re struggling to communicate with your kid’s teachers at school, an employee at work, or the people you love the most -- Headlee offers smart strategies that can help us all have conversations that matter.

Headlee goes through ten ways to have better conversations:
1) Don’t multitask
2) Don’t Pontificate
3) Open-ended questions
4) Go with the flow
5) If you don’t know, say you don’t know
6) Don’t equate your experience with theirs
7) Try not to repeat yourself
8) Stay out of the weeds (too many details)
9) Listen
10) Be brief

Celeste Headlee on the Importance of Small Talk

It's not often we get a way to make ourselves healthier—TRULY healthier—that we can start right now and that costs nothing. What is it? Small talk. Social isolation is just as harmful to you as smoking, and while debates about politics and long talks about the meaning of life can be good, what we get mentally and emotionally from a simple chat about the weather can have positive effects that last an entire day. But, journalist @CelesteHeadlee points out, we seem naturally inclined these days to surround ourselves with devices, not chit-chat. Is it because we can't control conversation, afraid we'll be stuck talking longer than we're comfortable? Do we simply not know what to say? Whatever is holding you back from striking up a conversation with a stranger, Headlee has some tips in this #ChicagoIdeas Talk that could literally save your life.
