Do you want to know the secret to opening up someone else’s mind for your ideas?
Have you ever had the experience where you talking to another person but you don’t seem to be getting through? They don’t seem to be listening to what you’ve got to say.

It’s like, when you’re speaking, there isn’t any engagement, they aren’t participating in the conversation with you.
The key to having the other person engaging in conversation with you, and a meaningful conversation, is to focus on them. 

Let me say from the get go, that you are not a mind reader. You do not know what is going on in that other persons life. You do not know what they’re looking for. You do not know what’s important for them.

My suggestion is to start your conversation by asking them something that most people don’t take the time to do. And that is to ask the other person “What’s the most important thing to you?”

To sharpen this further you could put it in context. Eg what’s the most important thing to you in your business or your career or your health ?
As soon as you start asking questions like this, the other persons mind opens up because they know it’s about them not about you.

Why not put it into Practice and see what happens for you? You’ll be amazed at the difference in the quality of your conversations.

If you’d like to dig a little further into the quality conversations, then put yes in the comments and I’ll send you a cheat sheet
