#1 New York Times best selling author, John Maxwell, in his book ‘Good Leaders ask Great Questions ‘, Maxwell asserts that questions are the most effective means of connecting with people and they help us to engage others in conversation.

Questions enable you to connect and to build effective relationships with people.

To express genuine interest in your people, ask the following questions:

  • What are you passionate about?
  • What drives you to wake up each morning?
  • What support would you need from me to enable you to achieve your passion?

Finally, allow each powerful question to land, and then just practice the art of listening. Simply … Be genuinely curious in what is being said.
