What do you do with someone who tells way too long stories?

Ask them follow up questions on what they just said.

Interrupt them with adding your own story or feedback.

Change topic!

Tell them they speak too much and that you need a shift in the conversation!

Here is what it looks like

“How did that make you feel?”

“What makes you think it was a wrong idea?”

“I have the feeling you told that story many times. I don’t need to hear all the details. What’s your point?”
