25 Questions To Ask People To Draw Them Out

As a personal coach, I use pointed and thoughtful questions to help my clients gain more clarity about themselves and to help me better understand my clients and their goals. I generally ask open-ended questions that can’t be answered with a simple “yes” or “no” so that the client is encouraged to dig deeper and uncover answers they may not have realized previously. Often after I ask a question, a client will say, “I’ve never thought about that before. ” Once they ponder the question and their feelings about it, it can lead to a profound insight or an “ah ha” moment.

Ursula M. Burns shares her Lean In story.

Dreams do come true, but not without the help of others, a good education, a strong work ethic and the courage to lean in. I was raised by a wonderful mother in the rough and tumble public housing projects on the Lower East Side of Manhattan. Many people told me I had three strikes against me: I was black. I was a girl. And I was poor. Mom didn’t see it that way. She constantly reminded me “where I was didn’t define who I was. ” She knew that education was my way up and out. On a modest salary, Mom somehow managed to send me to good Catholic schools.

George Melly

Loopy-mouthed and rotund under an outsized fedora, Melly could always be relied upon to wear louder suits and tell better, funnier and dirtier jokes than anyone else on the circuit. With a smile once described as "a cross between a leer and a twinkle", he pushed hard at the boundaries of public taste, knowing that, like the errant schoolboy he once was, he would always be forgiven. "I have this ability to appear outrageous without paying the consequences for it," he observed. Melly went through periods of colossal excess. When he and John Chilton began their annual Christmas season at Ronnie Scott’s in 1973 (the first of a series of Christmas bookings that ran for more than a quarter of a century) Melly’s performances had a uniquely erratic quality: "The captain is no longer in command of the ship," was one of John Chilton’s more diplomatic announcements as Melly, one night, slumped down the microphone stand on to the deck.
