Creating a constructive space with a simple question.
Creating a space for sharing takes practice and trust. Cultivate it by practicing constructive silence. Ask "Is there anything else that you are anxious, worried, or concerned about?"
Being comfortable with "empty" space, especially while listening, creates the opportunity for others to share what might obvious, confusing, or concerning.
It's a powerful communication tool that goes way beyond the normal status update and allows for insight into sustainability, expectations, and morale.
