#TedTalk Tuesday: When your job hinges on how well you talk to people, you learn a lot about how to have conversations — and that most of us don't converse very well. 

Celeste Headlee has worked as a radio host for decades, and she knows the ingredients of a great conversation: #honesty, #brevity, #clarity and a healthy amount of #listening.

In this insightful talk, she shares 10 useful rules for having better conversations. "Go out, talk to people, listen to people," she says. "And, most importantly, be prepared to be amazed."
