I am not a great fan of "10 ways to do something". The items are far too often, trite or just plain wrong.. But take a look at this TEDx talk from Celeste Headlee (@CelesteHeadlee) on How to have a good conversation. It's quite good.

In it she quotes from an article My Students Dont Know How to Have a Conversation by Paul Barnwell (@MindfulStew):

"Conversational competence might be the single-most overlooked skill we fail to teach students."

and

"Is there any 21st-century skill more important than being able to sustain confident, coherent conversation?"

Do you agree with Paul? If it is not conversation, what are the most important skills we sholud be teaching?
