Do you like to be interrupted during your speech? I bet no!
There are two situations to avoid.
First, make sure you are listening and not only waiting for your turn to speak, people may get confused about it, but it is essential to wait for the others to finish their thoughts. By the end, you can agree or not, don't make your point in the middle of the conversation.
Second, don't mess up with the first, and then you can speak when they finish their speech. It may be challenging, but remember it is a conversation, not a fight to see who goes on at length.
In a healthy chat, both sides can speak when the other one concludes their thoughts.
