  • Why are you late? 
  • Why did you go to the market? 
  • Why is there no coffee left in the pot?

Shift the question from WHY to HOW:

One observation of ‘HOW’ questions is the ability to allow consideration and reflection into the response:

  • Q: How do you feel about moving from the city to the country? 
  • A: Hmm, I feel positive about it. I’ll be able to dig in the gardens, clean the pond and go fishing whenever I want.

How To Entice People To Attend Your Meeting

What is one small improvement you can make today to ensure you’re not wasting your valuable time or that of others?

When sending a meeting invite, write clear objectives and outcomes

An objective is your purpose or goal of an effort or action; in this case, a request for a specific timeframe to accomplish a particular task. 

An outcome is a final product or result, consequence. In other words, the meeting should unfold using a process of logical thinking and finish with clarity of purpose.
