When people do not feel that you are interested in what they have to say, they will not come to you for future conversations, and killing those lines of communication can be deadly for your ministry.
Here are a few things you can do to help these spontaneous Sunday morning conversations be more effective:
◦Have a wing man– have someone available to take over what you are doing at the time to free you up for talks right away.
◦Carry a notepad– no matter how good your memory, you won’t remember everything someone tells you on a hectic Sunday morning. Write it down for future reference.
◦Make a date –let the person know that you would like to continue talking at a later time either by phone or in person.
◦Keep it short– even those conversations you do have on Sunday morning should be kept short. Tell the person that you only have three minutes, and stick to it. If it’s going to take longer, see the prior suggestion.
It is imperative that you let the person know that the conversation they want to have with you is very important to you whether it is one that happens immediately or one that needs to be scheduled for a later time. When people do not feel that you are interested in what they have to say, they will not come to you for future conversations, and killing those lines of
communication can be deadly for your ministry.
What are some ideas that you have when it comes to having or scheduling these conversations?
