I have a secret game that I play in every conversation I have. Until now, no one knew about it… but I'm about to dish the deets.
I try to get every person I interact with to say, Wow. That’s a great question… at least once in our conversation.
WHY DO I PLAY THIS SILLY GAME?
This personal challenge forces me to stay super present with the person I'm with and… to listen more than I talk. This way I can artfully select a question that leads them into an area of their brain they don't normally hang out in.
It’s fascinating watching someone turn a flashlight on in the halls of their head and search for an answer to a question they never imagined they’d have to answer. I love watching someone lean into something new.
