How to Take Control in a Conversation?

You can talk for hours and hours with your friends. Participate in endless discussions. You listen to each other, you ask questions, you respond spontaneously and you show your emotions. You feel relaxed, free and unrestrained … You can take your time. No big deal…

Conversations in a professional setting are however, rather different. More formal. Less natural. In a business environment, a conversation is much more than just a simple talk. You need certain information from the other, or you want to share specific information. Perhaps you have to give instructions or you have to persuade a client or colleague.
