Good communication is the holy grail to opening doors.
Some are more talented than the others. Some get distracted by it.
I love to distract people.
Today, when a manager of mine asked me out of the blue: What makes you happy?, I gave him an answer he was not expecting. “I am in general a very grateful person, so I find a lot of things in life that make me happy”
I believe this question was meant to create some distraction. But as this answer genuinely surprised him, I think he was the one distracted. It ended up to be a constructive discussion, even if we don’t think alike.
