As a Leadership and Transition Coach, I’ve learned how powerful questions can reveal the other’s innermost thinking, start people talking and get to the heart of the matter. When the conversation stalls, use these questions to delve deeper into the conversation.
5 Questions to delve deeper and open up conversation:
- If you could remove one barrier in your life, what would it be?
- What’s stopping you?
- You’ve told me what you think….how do you FEEL?
- What do you know now that you wished you’d known earlier?
- What have I missed that you want to share now?
Remember that listening is a powerful skill in its own right.
