Ever been in those meetings where someone belabors a point? They stress it once, twice, three times a lady....Oops! wasn't expecting that...
Anyway..Why is it that when we feel we have something to contribute to the mix we state our opinion, make our point, share our wisdom? What if nobody asked for our opinion, our view and we gave it anyway? How does that make you feel-when someone launches into "SAGE" mode? What thoughts run through your mind? Have you ever been in mid-delivery of your magnum opus and realized that half the room has glazed over? Did you shut it down or try and regain your befuddled audience with over speak?
What if I asked more questions? What if I asked better questions? What would happen if instead of making points, sharing opinions and perspectives I inquired those things of others? What if I led with questions, sought to understand and became more inquisitive?
Hmmm...what do you think?
