The most charming exit you can think of
The best small talk will come to an end – sooner or later. Why might this be a pressing issue? Maybe because you get overwhelmed soon because of all the stimuli around you. Especially for highly sensitive women this is a fact to consider. Stimulus satiation can turn the best talk into stress. You should know when to leave.
But maybe it is just that you feel the small talk has come to a natural end or you have other goals for this event on your agenda. All these are reasons not to be ashamed of. Enough is enough.
In fact, you might do both of you a favor finding the right moment to stop. But how to?
Wrap up the conversation, always smiling, and tell your partner what you have learned and why you will appreciate staying in contact. It’s important here to be proactive, that it is you who ends the talk.
Sometimes it can be a good thing to be open and tell people that you need a break because of who you are, what kind of personality. You can be sure that this is not a turn-off if a good small talk just took place. Your openness will rather be respected, since it should have become very obvious that you have been all-in during the talk.
In order to build something, you will need tools. By not using them, your effort is either doubled or useless. Building a network is crucial for your professional success. Even more so, if you are a founder starting from scratch or a solopreneur.
To think a network can be built without using clever communication strategies is more than optimistic. Who should let people know what you as a female founder are offering and why they need you to fit the bill, if you are not telling them? To make the circle complete you need small talk as a tool.
Make it YOUR tool paying attention to your introverted needs and embracing your talents. You will be amazed how successful you will be.
