Blog : HOW TO GET TO KNOW SOMEONE
Posted on Fri January 06, 2012 by Kathleen (Kathi) R. Madison, MRC, LPC, CRC
I'm often asked a question about how to 'truly' get to know someone. People wonder how to make friends and how to have friendships last. Here's a simple little idea to try:
Ask 'open ended' questions......not ones that can be answered by a mere 'yes' or 'no.' This gives someone a chance to tell you a little bit more about themselves.
Next, I like using an Imago technique by asking, "tell me more about that."
The next time you meet someone, ask open ended questions and when they answer, ask them to tell you more! Try it....it works like magic!
