How can you obtain a deeper connection with others?

How many truly deep connections do you have?

This past week has been a whirlwind.  I have been on the road speaking at the NYSIR Symposium in Tarrytown, NY and I also attended the Global Leadership Summit (GLS) here in Rochester, NY at Roberts Wesleyan College.  While at the Summit, I heard many incredible speakers, but listening to Vanessa Van Edwards talk about the different levels of human connection got me thinking about my own relationships.  How do I develop deeper connections with others?  In the #CJJblog this week, I give you a baker’s dozen (PLUS a bonus tip) of questions you can ask others to take your relationship with them to that next (deeper) level.  Which one is your favorite?

  • What is the highlight of your day?
  • What is a personal passion project you are currently working on?
  • Do you have anything exciting coming up in your life?
  • What’s your story? (Pro tip: it’s best to ask extroverts this question)
  • What has lit your fire recently?
  • What is currently your biggest goal?
  • What book/TV/movie character is most like you?
  • How do you feel most understood?
  • What is something most people don’t know about you?
  • If you really knew me, what would you know about me?
  • What life experience(s) have most shaped your life?
  • Who is your hero?
  • What are you most proud of?
  • (BONUS TIP): Write the book you wish you could read
