Impact: When (kinda) blind trust bares (really tasty) fruit.

Last week was our very first, top secret, members-only HUSH event.

I knew this was an exercise in trust. Trust that it didn’t matter where we were going. Or what we’d be doing. It was all about who would be there. Not specifically who. Rather there was safety in knowing that “the who” that were also going on this little adventure were going for the same reason. To Engage. On purpose.

“That was fun to get out of my comfort zone. Never would have tried that many places in one day on my own…. or if i’d known what I was getting into before hand.”

Whether it's in-person or digital, with an individual or in a group, we have conversations every single day. But when was the last time you stopped to think about the role of conversations and why we, as human beings, need conversations?

The word "conversation" comes from the Latin word "convertere," which means "to take turns." But take turns doing what exactly?

Corey Fernandez shares what he believes is the ultimate goal of conversation and how, if we achieve it, we become more connected in a meaningful way.

How to Ask Follow-up Questions w/ Elaine Ezekiel

Follow-up questions are an important part of having meaningful conversations as they keep the conversation moving forward and allow for clarification and elaboration of details.

Without follow-up questions, your conversation will never get past the surface level because you won't be talking in depth about any particular topic. This type of interaction feels really awkward and prevents genuine connection.

One way to improve your ability to ask follow-up questions is by practicing active listening. In this video, Elaine Ezekiel shares how the power of active listening can not only help you ask follow-up questions but ask the follow-up questions your partner wants you to ask.
