Seth Godin recently pumped this up as a valuable question in some contexts. I’m here to tell you that it is. I’ve used that question extremely effectively:
- To better understand what someone was trying to get at at work.
- To make some plans that affect multiple people.
- With my daughter to expand my empathy on a tough situation she’s thinking about that is upsetting to her.
- With a contractor I’d hired for something.
It’s a great question!
