Ask open-ended questions

Those that require more than a “yes” or “no” answer, are the best type of questions to ask if you’re looking to establish common ground. 

Just be careful not to overdo your questioning. You don’t want the other person to feel like they’re being interrogated.

IDEAS

Stop lugging around all that baggage

A little baggage is totally okay, but you need to lighten your load before jumping into any new relationship.

Let go of any left-over hurtful feelings that might be lingering and realize that your new relationship is a new opportunity to put all of that behind you.

Step #1: Intention

Purpose provides confidence, boosts influence and is contagious. To be more purposeful in your conversations answer the following:

  • Who is hosting the event?
  • What kinds of people are going?
  • When is it and what’s the schedule?
  • Why are you going?
