Lastly, Tim didn’t want to leave us empty handed so he closes the show by explaining a simple tool that helps build relationships and take everyday conversations deeper. The tool is simply the question, “What else?” “What else?” is a question that can transition any conversation potentially into a much more significant and meaningful interaction. For example, when you’re having breakfast with an old friend and you’ve been mainly doing “small talk”, often times the blanket questions “What else?” allows for the conversation to take a turn to possibly something more significant happening in someone’s life. Often we don’t want to be the “bearer of bad news” or the “buzzkill” so we don’t want to share what’s REALLY going on in our lives until someone asks us…so the question “What else?” allows for someone to share the deeper things happening in their life. It also helps the recipient of the question to take a reflective posture and think about their life and whatever significant things are happening that are worth sharing. This question is simple and profound and if used often can lead you to places internally that people have never invited or taken you before! Try it out! “Hey what else is going on?” “So what else has been significant lately?” or just “What else?” and when they ask you “What do you mean?” you respond simply, “I dunno, what else is important or happening or are you planning lately?” Go for it.

We hope you pick up these tools and put them to work in your relationships!
