Big talk and small talks.

November 21st, 2009 Kevin No comments

“Big talk” happens in large groups. Diverse interests abound. Hard to navigate all the cross purposes, intentions, and expectations. During these talks, it’s not what you say as much as what they hear that drives points home. “Small talks” happen in mini-tribes. These are the groups of eight or less that we all speak with daily. This is where the bulk of the stuff that matters happens. It’s important to have both and for the money, exceptional ability at small talks usually fairs better than great big talk. Focus in on those small talks.

For what reasons do we communicate in them? What methods and techniques do we use? How does body language, tone, and rhythm serve us? How come it is that every mini-tribe has a different set of these methods and techniques? Where are the mini-tribe talk standards!
