Maker's Guidelines


WHAT IS BEING A MAKER?

As a Maker, you are the catalyst (or responsible) for creating a meaningful conversation with someone that results in them connecting deeply within. The product of this conversation will be a single WORD that has a unique and special meaning for them. You then personally provide a tool to support them in accessing this deep connection every day.

OUR METHOD:

In order to pique their curiosity and create permission to go deeper, we always like to open the conversation by simply asking the question: What’s your WORD? (“WYW”) Most likely you will get an answer to the effect of: What word? What do you mean? You then have their full attention to engage in a thoughtful conversation.
Here is our 3 step conversation that demonstrate what the conversation could look like.

The 3 step conversation after "WYW":

Step 1:
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.
Step 2:
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.
Step 3:
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
Step 1 What are you passionate about?
- Beach tennis
  • What is your purpose?
  • To live a peaceful and fulfilled life, full of passion, joy and love.
  • What is going on in your life right now?
  • -A lot. Two jobs plus training for competition - very little spare time.
Step 2
  • That’s cool! What do you feel you would need in order to play more Beach Tennis?
  • -My life feels cluttered and it takes away from things I care about.I bet I could find more time by organizing my life better.
  • Awesome, when was a time where that was difficult for you to create?
  • -Well, sometimes I overwork myself and then my personal life suffers. Then I lose myself, and with that my peace, joy and passion.

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.

Step 3
  • What’s a WORD that would remind you of that?
  • -ORGANIZE
  • What word can be a reminder for you to live a life of with peace, joy and passion?
  • -NOW
  • What is a one word to remind you that you can make some time for self-care?
  • -BALANCE
Once they have uncovered their WORD, we solidify the impact by Activating their intention. Simply pair their WORD with an action that they can take that day to begin living their WORD: “What can you do TODAY to start living your WORD?”
Additional Step 1 questions: Pick any other questions from the deck of 30 Meaningful question cards included in your Maker Kit.
