Talking to people is hard. How the heck do you connect? What do you say? How do you find common ground? It makes your heart pound and your mind feel stuffed. It’s just agonizing.
If you have a hard time talking to people, one of the most common advices is: Ask questions!
Absolutely right, but part of the answer. When applied, somehow a lot of you guys feel like you fall in interview mode. Asking question, after question,…only interrogating, only getting simple answers back. Not really having a conversation.
So, interview mode isn’t working.
But it can work! Interview mode is actually very effective. Maybe you are only getting stale conversation. But believe me, spice it up with a few key ingredients and you can make it work! You just need a few tweaks.
