How to strengthen your conversations using three power tips

When we use facts and data in the course of our conversation with people, it helps the
a listener to realise the logic behind your thinking and to create the solution for a problem.
These facts will help the listener to make the right choice while responding to you. However
it could happen that we may not have all the facts at hand and our assumptions may prove
to be inaccurate or incomplete too.
Gaston Dsouza is a competent trainer and a high energy master of ceremonies who says
that it always isn’t easy to distinguish between facts and interpret them the right way. The
following three tips can be helpful to incorporate data and facts during a one-to-one
Discover facts: It is important to listen to and understand the facts. Facts could also include
the result or consequence of a specific situation. For example, a statement like “ We
submitted our report a day later than what we had originally promised” will be countered by “
We probably won’t rely on your team in the future”. Here the report being late is a fact while
the negative response is a consequence of the statement. During a conversation, begin with
facts and help the listener to interpret those facts as well.
Interpret facts: People often offer their opinion in the garb of a fact. It is therefore important
to discriminate well between a fact and its interpretation by others. This could be difficult if
one is not used to deciphering facts. A news report can be an opinion shared by a respected
individual yet the opinion does not become a fact.
Defend facts: A probable solution may be in sight if you attempt to understand the other
person’s perspective. Different people can make a different interpretation of a specific fact but
by defending, facts will help you to understand the situation in a better way. Professional
speakers, debate specialists and compering professionals often rely on these tips to make
their conversations agreeable to all those concerned.
