Welcome back to Episode #15 of The Daily Interaction podcast. Today’s topic is on how to avoid getting into unwanted conversations with people. This time, inspiration struck from a listener. After Episode 12 on the topic of how to end conversations politely and tactfully, one of my listeners, Grant McWilliams, asked me to do an episode on not getting into a conversation to begin with.
So here goes. His wish is my command, just as yours would be if it fits the topic of daily interactions so always share your thoughts. I hope that you enjoy this episode as much as I did in making it.
