Issue 152 - 03 | Why NEVER to Give Another Elevator Speech: Surprising Ways to Connect with Anyone, Anytime

By Sam Horn
Published April 19, 2017 10:00 a.m.
“Never again give an elevator SPEECH. Never again explain what you do and/or what you’re trying to get a YES to. Never again ‘Tell people what you’re going to tell them.’

Instead, ask instead of explain. Open with “Do you know … ?” “Did you know … ?” or “Have you ever… ?” questions that transform monologues into dialogues. Turn confusion into clarity and connection by creating relevant, two-way communications that add value for all involved.”
