The Art of Conversation – Top 3 Questions

I like to think of great conversation as The Art of Connection.

What got me thinking about this recently was an ABC Radio event that I was asked to be on the panel for. A Sydney Singles event centred around The Art of Conversation.

But why is there so much talk about conversation?

Well how we communicate is the basis of all relationships. And not just romantic ones. But every interaction (or conversation) we have with someone is an opportunity for Connection. So becoming a master at conversation, allows you to be a Master Connector. And as human beings we are all craving Connection.

This means you can literally connect with anyone, anywhere at anytime if you simply know the Art of Conversation.

The one question I get most often is:

What questions should I ask?

Knowing the right questions is a key ingredient for great conversation. By asking powerful questions, you show the other person you are genuinely interested in who they are. If you couple that with active listening and reflection, the other person is likely to feel heard, understood and valued. This is a Win Win and a powerful energetic connector.

Here are 3 Types Of Powerful Open Questions

1. Why

This type of question talks to somebody’s bigger vision – the reasons Why they want to do something, create something or Why something is important to them.

For example:
 – Why is it important for you to create that?
 – Why do you want that?
 – Why would that help you?
 – Why did you decide to do that?

2. What

What questions give more detail and allow for options or possibilities to be discussed. This is a lateral plane of thinking.

For example:
 – What are your options?
 – What does that mean to you?
 – What else have you considered?

This gives you further insight into someone’s decision making strategy and in a dating context will help you see what they’ve been thinking about to get them to where they are today. In this way, you’ll have a better feeling for whether you resonate with how they think and the reasons for their decisions.

3. How

This is where we get into the nitty gritty. Down into the detail. How questions are the execution of any one of your options.

The types of How questions you could ask are:
 – How does make you feel?
 – How could you go about doing that?
 – How does that fit into your overall goals?

Asking Why, What and How questions allow you to take conversation to a deeper level with someone immediately and create an instant connection. Just don’t forget to listen and reflect back the answers they give you before going onto the next question!

That is the beginning of the Art of Conversation and the key questions to ask in order to create connection.

If you’d like some extra help creating deeper more meaningful connections, just send me an email here. I’d love to hear from you!

A perfect reminder, as this is something I have typically struggled with.  I have so many ideas which I’m great at starting but then fail to keep the momentum going and stick with them 💃. .
Big thanks to @businesschicks for putting on a great event last week ❤️🙏.

Instagram post 2110038789586226099_1688634438 Now is the time. Don’t wait a moment longer to become who you know you are destined to be. We must let go of all the ideas of who we think we ‘should’ be, in order to step into the possibility of becoming who we could be. Let’s do it together 😌❤️x
Instagram post 2082339406950638347_1688634438 It’s so easy to worry about what others think of us and interesting how rarely we believe they’re thinking nice things about us!
.
I’ve recently taken to reminding myself that what happens in other people’s minds is actually none of my business. Whether they think nicely or otherwise about me is completely out of my control...
.
Worrying about something I can’t change is a waste of time and energy. Instead I prefer to focus on my own thoughts about myself. Because these are the ones that matter most and I can always change them! .

Instagram post 2075802097887383456_1688634438 So often I make things waaayyy more complicated than they need to be!
.
So I’m practicing letting everything be easy and taking the path of least resistance.
.
This is taking some time for my mind to reprogram and allow life to be easeful every moment. But I’m committed! 👊

.
My latest manifestation of this was a moment a week or so ago of inspiration to do a Masters in the US. It was super last minute with the course starting in 8 weeks. I had to work really hard to get my application and all the associated bits and pieces rushed through. I was exhausted. This should have been enough of a red flag for me! But no...my taurean determination 😳 kicked in and wanted to give it everything. Having done and given it all I had, I surrendered the outcome to the Universe... and got knocked back! I didn’t get in. All that efforting and energy spent pushing uphill for the last week and a half. .
It is clear to me now that I’m actually already on the right path doing what I’m doing right here in sleepy Byron Bay 😌 and there was no need to ‘do’ anything else other than simply keep being present in the here and now.
.
It’s clear to me AGAIN - that when things are right they’re EASY! And that my pushing, blocks the natural flow of energy that is already right here in this very moment.

Instagram post 2062017934847768958_1688634438 Hi 👋 I’m Sarah. I’ve been finding it hard lately to articulate what I do when people ask me since I do a number of things. And I’ve been thinking long and hard about what I really value and what Living A Brave Life stands for. So I thought I’d give it a shot today. .
.
Connection, Courage, Curiosity. This is the mantra of Living A Brave Life. As a Soul-Connector and Meditation teacher, I help others to develop a healthy relationship with themselves so they can have fulfilling relationships with others. In an increasingly disconnected world; anxiety, loneliness and feelings of isolation are becoming more common. These symptoms of 'disconnection' block the energy with ourselves, stopping us from connecting with others. Through whole hearted relational coaching and mind mastery meditation, I take people on the journey back to their true selves. Fusing the best of Science & Spirituality, either one on one or in small group workshops, I've had the privilege of working with people all over the world in helping them to live a brave life.
.
Hope that makes it a bit clearer! 🤗❤️

It’s liberation from within...freeing yourself from your old thought patterns and behaviours. 
Now that’s true freedom 🙏❤️
