During the conversations, most of the times it may happen that we may not agree with the views that are expressed by others. In such cases, we may disagree with them politely and we ought to change our view also if it is proved incorrect instead of arguing with wrong information.

Be brief: A message to be delivered should be brief. It should neither be too short nor too long. Time factor is very important both for the speaker as well as the listener.

Maintain proper eye contact: This suggestion should not be overlooked by you during the conversation you need to maintain proper eye contact. Looking directly at the person as you speak helps to communicate your sincerity and increases the directness of your message hence do not fail to maintain eye contact.

Keep an eye on the flow of your speech: Talking too much fast and too slow will create confusion and disinterest in the minds of your listeners. Try to maintain a moderate speed while interacting with someone.
