If you’re like me, you always have thoughts in your head. And if you’re talking with someone – a partner, spouse, or colleague – you might not know what they are thinking. After all, we can’t read other people’s minds.

What if you had a quick hack for getting other people to share what’s on their mind? What if you had a question that would get the other person to open up to you?

There’s a question that can do this – and it’s one that works, every time. In this episode, Deb shares her most commonly used coaching question to hear what someone else is thinking about, and the reasons this question works. She also shares a story from a client about how using this question makes business development conversations much more effective.

If you want a question for your toolkit to enhance all of your conversations, press the play button now.
