What’s Your Story?
As we gradually move toward “business as usual”, many business people will be able to get together in person in large gatherings/mixers for developing new relationships, and eventually generating new business. In these encounters, the questions, “What do you do?” and “Where are you from?” are often asked.
This might not lead to real connections. Instead in the article which appeared in Inc.com, Marcel Schwantes writes about the “5 Questions the Most Interesting People Will Always Ask in Conversations”.
1. What’s your story?
2. What makes you smile when you get up in the morning?
3. What is that one book that has influenced you the most?
4. What absolutely excites you right now?
5. What’s the most important thing I should know about you?
You can ask anyone those questions; especially yourself.
