2011.05.09 - Is there more?

Q: How do I get people to open up and answer questions beyond the usual safe answers?

A: Try asking "Is there more?" It's an open-ended way of giving people a real chance to add in their thoughts. It works. Sometimes the answer will be "no", but lots of times this is the person or group's real invitation to give their ideas and share their concerns beyond what's easy or expected.
