Do you want to get to know someone better but just don’t know how to open that door?
Next time, try these 10 questions to go deeper in your conversations:
- How did __(this)__ come about?
- What would you like to create (for yourself) in the future?
- What is next for you?
- What drives you?
- Why are you doing __(this)__?
- What motivates you?
- How can I help you accomplish more of what you want to create?
- What do you want or need more of?
- What can I give you to help you get closer to ___(that)___?
- Why did you choose this ___(path, etc)_____ vs doing something else?
In the end, ask yourself if you are being “self-serving?” If you aren’t, then anything you ask will build a better relationship.
