Ask a question and see what happens

Communication expert Alexa Fischer says we've lost the ability to just talk to people. With our heads in our gadgets and our attention always elsewhere, it is difficult to connect. Naturally this takes its toll on work relationships.

"You'll be amazed when you start to ask someone about their business or their day how they'll open up to you," Fischer says. "It's the gift of being. Breathing in the moment and taking in the other person ... Curiosity starts amazing conversation."

So give yourself the gift of watching this video. Then practice.
