WHAT IS BEING A MAKER?
BE READYWhat can I expect in this process?
When you open the space for someone to talk about their vision, their struggles, their purpose and passion, you are opening up yourself to a magical connection with another human being. Make sure you are in a healthy place yourself (both physically and mentally) to ask questions and listen to best support this process.
ASK QUESTIONSWhat is someone's WORD?
The WORD we uncover reflects our intention, our purpose, and our inspiration to be our best self. For some, it can be unfamiliar to process through deeply personal questions with another person, so we’ve come up with a guideline to support you in finding someone’s WORD.
SUPPORTHow to find someone's WORD?
We have discovered there are multiple paths to get someone to connect with themselves to uncover their WORD. If you are not used to having deep and meaningful conversations with others you may feel uncomfortable at first, but with practice you will realize the deeper you go the more they connect with themselves and the more impactful the WORD will be in their lives. YOU become the catalyst of this impact by asking open ended questions and supporting people in uncovering their WORD.
Here is our 3 step conversation that demonstrate what the conversation could look like.
The 3 step conversation after "WYW":
Ask a broad follow up question to demonstrate interest in them to connect on a deeper level. PAUSE and LISTEN. Whatever they say will be a direct reflection of what’s most important to them at this moment in their life.
Because they are sharing something potentially vulnerable, acknowledge their response with an affirmation and/or appreciation. Continue to go deeper by asking them to elaborate with another question regarding their answer. PAUSE and LISTEN. You don’t need to rush this step. It may take a minute to land on something truly meaningful to them. This is where the MAGIC is created. You never know when the last time someone took an interest to connect with them on this level.
Once you get the sense they have made a deep connection to something important to them, encourage them to condense their response down to the one WORD that will best remind them of what they discover about themselves through this meaningful conversation.
Here are a few examples after you ask What's Your WORD:
|Example 1||Example 2||Example 3|
What are you passionate about?
- Beach tennis
That must be tough, if you had more time what would you do with it?
-Self-care for sure. It feels great to be doing things that I love, but it can be exhausting when I don't rest. So, i'd like to have some chill time too.
Additional Step 1 questions: Pick any other questions from the deck of 30 Meaningful question cards included in your Maker Kit.
